Cultural Passport

A very popular feature of A World A'Fair, inaugurated in 2007, has been the Passport program.

The Passport is a small booklet containing a page for each country/ethnic organization, with a photo from the organization and a question having to do with this year's festival theme.

Children of all ages visiting the Festival receive a passport to be taken to each country's booth where they will find or be told the answer to the question and have their "passport" stamped providing them with a fun learning experience.

The  children can have their names entered into a drawing  for prizes donated by the ethnic organizations and Passport sponsors.
