The festival, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 10 at Town Square Park, will come alive with the sights and sounds of one of the most diverse populations in the region, celebrating the cultures and communities that make the city of Federal Way a vibrant place to live, work and play.

More than 70 vendors, 11 food vendors and 10 performance groups are scheduled to appear at the event. Some of the food vendors include Bethlehem (Ethiopian food), Dev’s Ice Cream Truck, Dutch Brothers, East India Grill, GoGoGo Snowcones, Jazzy’s Cookie Company, KC Deez BBQ, KJ’s Cakery Bakery, Mini … The Dough-Nut, Puft Bubble Waffles, Tabassum Food Truck and Thai U Up.
