International Week 2024

Shorewood Hills 2024 International Week: May 13– May 18, 2024

The 2024 International Week Festival planning is underway! This amazing week-long festival celebrates our different cultures and countries through various events such as art activities at Eagle Heights, an International Parade and Performances, the Food Fair and Global Village.

The success of this event relies on your participation.

We are looking for families to share traditional cultural music, dance or other arts for the Performances, Parade, and to make tasty food and treats for the Global Food Fair. We also invite families to create country displays and activities for the Global Village, and more!

We will kick off with the art activities at Eagle Heights on May 5th. Then during International Week, enjoy the Parade and Performances mid-week on Wednesday, May 15th and it will culminate with the Global Village and the International Food Fair on Saturday, May 18th.

While the International Week Planning Committee is finalizing the details of each event, the sneak peak of our program is listed below.

International Week Events:
