Folks outside of the area may not know, but Idaho, particularly Boise, is home to thousands of people of many different cultures from all over the world. Linguistic diversity alone boasts at least 90 different languages being regularly and actively spoken in Idaho.
To celebrate and preserve this unique weaving together of cultures, Global Lounge is proud to present the World Village Festival in downtown Boise this June. Global Lounge is a non-profit organization devoted to the preservation and education of world culture, and is the City of Boise’s honorary ambassador to the world. These good folks are responsible for putting on all of Boise’s best cultural events, the upcoming World Village Festival being one of its crown jewels.
