World Beat Festival Title

Riverfront Park | Salem, Oregon

Thank you to everyone that made the 2015 World Beat Festival such a success.  19,000 visitors braved the heat to celebrate and learn about the 75 cultural heritages on display. It took 434 volunteers to plan and manage all aspects of the program – congratulations to you all for creating such a great weekend. Thank you also to sponsors, to performers, to booth vendors, and to support services. But most of all, thank you to those who attended.

The Festival is created by 8 volunteer teams who work year-round in planning. We meet every third Thursday at 6:15pm at the Reed Opera House in downtown Salem. We always welcome new members, so call us at (503) 581-2004 if you’d like to get involved in planning 2016. We’re starting right now! Here are some stand-out images our volunteers captured from 2015.
