One World Day 2021
August 29 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Hosted by the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation
Since 1945, the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Federation has celebrated One World Day in the Gardens. This annual event reflects the theme of the Gardens: “Peace through Mutual Understanding.”
One World Day is the highlight of summer events in the Gardens and the occasion at which all the Gardens get together to celebrate as one. Events include a Parade of Flags, a naturalization ceremony, cultural performances, entertainment, gardens exhibitors, authentic diverse ethnic food, children’s activities, and more.
The 75th Annual One World Day will be produced for the seventh consecutive year by Johnny K. Wu (co-Founder of the Cleveland Asian Festival and producer of Charity Jam in Hollywood).
Please note: MLK and East Blvds will be CLOSED for ongoing traffic on August 29, 2021, from 7am till midnight. For parking information and how to get to the parking lot from I-90, please visit this page.
The 75th annual One World Day event is organized by Johnny and a number of volunteer committees. If you’re interested in volunteering, please consider joining us, email us for more information.
