What Is the World of Nations Celebration?
Celebrate 31 years of exploration at the 2024 World of Nations Celebration! Experience the cuisine, artistry and customs from lands near and far as you travel throughout Tailgaters Parking for this unique two-day event.
The World of Nations Celebration takes place at 225 Talleyrand Ave., Jacksonville, Florida 32202.
The celebration gives Jacksonville a chance to showcase the diverse international communities in our area. Annually, 75,000 visitors, including 12,000 children on school field trips experience the festival.
As you travel through the World of Nations Celebration, experience the cuisine, artistry and customs from lands near and far. Each "country" represented has its flag on display, at least one person speaking that country's official language, and they serve the native foods of that nation - which is our favorite part! Many play traditional music and demonstrate their style of dance or relate stories from their culture. Artwork and clothing/costumes representing the country are also exhibited. The celebration also includes the "World of Kids Playland", which features arts and crafts and other programs for children.
So grab your event passport and join us for an adventure at the World of Nations Celebration in Jacksonville!
