No International Festival in 2022

The Bowie International Festival will NOT take place this year as it usually does on the first Saturday in October. Instead, the City has combined forces with community members on the Old Bowie Arts & Heritage Committee to host the Old Bowie Celebrates! Festival on October 1, 2022. 

Unfortunately, due to the impending weather, the Old Bowie Celebrates! Festival is canceled. There is no rain date. Check back next September for information on the 2023 festival. 

World cultures and nations will be celebrated throughout the festival in a variety of ways, including dance and musical performances from India, the Caribbean, Native American heritage, Europe and the Middle East. They’ll also be unique food vendors, and multicultural activities for the kids.
