Festival Mission

The festival spotlights various cultures that are represented in Oklahoma to promote appreciation and understanding of the peoples of the world and our state’s rich and diverse heritage. This appreciation and understanding is developed through exhibits, entertainment, food, displays, and art. This year, Global Oklahoma will recognize The Republic of Korea (South Korea), its history, culture and contributions. Through looking, listening and participating, Oklahoman’s have the opportunity to gain knowledge of the world today, as well as traditions of the past.

Greetings! You're invited to be an exhibitor at the 25th annual Global Oklahoma-a festival of cultures, at Rose State College in Midwest City on Saturday, September 28, 2013. The free festival increases awareness and understanding of the many nationalities and cultures which are part of Oklahoma, and provides a setting for the community to get better acquainted. We anticipate more than 4,000 in attendance. Activities include exhibits, live entertainment, food children's activities, and more! The festival hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

We would like to have as many aspects of your culture represented as possible, so we hope you will bring an exhibit, artwork, a display, game or sport, or a live performance that will entertain and educate our guests about your country or culture.
