Travel around the world during Kids’ World, the Children’s International Festival, November 4–7, 2004 in the upper level of the IPE building at Expo Square.

The award-winning festival is a special place where children can experience diverse cultures, music, art, food, and people, all presented in a child-friendly environment that appeals to a youth’s sense of imagination and adventure. It is a chance to make a personal connection with someone from across the globe.

The theme for the festival is “Hello World,” capturing the spirit of Kids’ World where children can greet the world through hands-on activities, displays, and conversations, enabling children to form their own opinions about the people and places that make up the global community. The poster features paintings from the children’s book “Hello World” by Manya Stojic, who, with her publisher Boxer Books, has graciously allowed the organization to use the images.

The festival, presented by Tulsa Global Alliance, began in 1993 with a vision of uniting Tulsa’s diverse ethnic communities under one roof to provide children with a global perspective and unique understanding of our world and has grown into one of the premier international children’s festivals in the region.

Admission is $3 for children 12 years old and younger and $4 for adults. For more information, call Tulsa Global Alliance at 591-4750 or visit
