Passport Program

Passport coverChildren of all ages will enjoy the Passport Program. This is a hands-on program where children will have an opportunity to do an activity or create a treasure that is representative of a country around the world. There are over 20 different passport stations in all for the children to participate in. The students will receive an actual CulturFest Passport (looks just like the real thing) – they can use this passport to make their way around the world in a single day. Some of the countries that have been represented in the past include: Germany, Israel, Brazil, Australia, Japan, Norway, Finland, Mexico, and many many more.

Passport ProgramPrior to the festival we distribute over 7,000 passports to all pre-K, elementary and Junior High students throughout the region. If for some reason you didn’t receive a passport, don’t worry we will have more available the day of the festival – just visit the information booth.



Passport Program

The Passport program is partially underwritten by a number of colleges and universities in the region. We are VERY grateful to them for their wonderful support
