This idea was soon turned into a reality and first ethnic festival was held on October 27, 1972.  We named it “Festival of Nations”.  It was held at the Hudson Valley Community Collage.It was welcomed so much that thousands of people had to be turned away.  The following year we moved to the RPI Field House to be able to accommodate everybody.  In 1978, when the Convention Center at theEmpire State Plaza in Albany was built and ready for us, we moved there.  This was a more central location and had modern equipment and facilities.

The word got around about us – how much enjoyment we offer for the family on one Sunday afternoon in the Fall of every year.  Now there are several international bazaars/festivals in the area.  They are organized by different institutions.  Our Festival of Nations remains the original.  It is unique, in the sense that we, the participating nations, ourselves, organize everything.Each nation has equal voice.  There is no veto power, no deadlocks nor sanctions.  Here at a small-scaled United Nations, the decisions are made jointly.  Any ethnic group (registered as a non-profit group) can apply to join us.

This year, we are celebrating our 45th annual Festival with you! We hope you enjoy your few hours with us by looking at the arts and crafts from different parts of the world; by tasting delicious ethnic foods; and by being part of the audience indulging in the music with rhythm and dances representing various cultures and traditions of the world.
