The Festival was conceived by the Plano City Council’s Multicultural Outreach Roundtable in 2005 to showcase and celebrate the many cultures represented by the people of Plano. It is designed to promote awareness of cultural diversity and facilitate communication between all cultural groups in the community. It also serves to advance Plano’s visibility and standing as an international city.
The Plano International Festival is sponsored by the Plano International Festival Corporation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The festival’s variety of offerings for attendees and strong community partnerships has helped it win the Plano ISD Diversity Advisory Committee’s 2014 Community Diversity Leadership Award.
And the Festival’s comprehensive Zero Waste program has helped the Festival win the City of Plano’s Environmental Star of Excellence Award four times.
They also have over 100 grassroots volunteers and welcome PISD students and Community Teens to come and volunteer at the event.
