Frankfurt International School is thrilled to announce Worldfest 2023, Sunday, 14 May from 12:00-16:00 on the Oberursel Campus.
All community members are invited to join in this fun-filled annual event featuring food and drink from around the world, live music and entertainment, a flag parade, professionally-run outdoor games, face-painting and other fun-filled activities. While entry to Worldfest is free, you can purchase food and drink tickets, as well as game bracelets for the event.
The event will begin with a Flag Parade to represent more than 60 countries and regions that are part of FIS. The Worldfest Committee is still looking for students and parents to bear a flag or sign to represent the school's countries and regions during the parade. Everyone can participate and you can bear the flag of any country or region of your choice. A registration form to participate will be shared in Calendar Highlights prior to the event.
Game bracelets will be sold for 8 Euro and will provide access to all of the outdoor games, like bouncy castles, rodeo bull riding, Hippo parkour and more. A bracelet also allows children to play all of the small games, including mini golf, duck fishing and more. Pre-event ticket sales will take place Monday through Friday, 8-12 May at the Primary School entrance from 8:30-8:50, and at the ABC Bookstore (Upper School entrance) from 10:30-13:15. Tickets and bracelets can also be purchased day of event. All tickets are cash only and are non-refundable.
