This virtual event will promote and celebrate the international diversity and heritage of the Brazos Valley and provide children and families a day of virtual literary, science and art activities.

Participating virtual exhibits provided by Texas A&M student organizations, community organizations and businesses will provide educational, information and performance videos that will showcase music, dance, science, agriculture, and art.

In addition, there will be live stream performances on Facebook as well as a drive-through Culture and Craft Bag pick up in Downtown Bryan.

“We are very excited to collaborate with Brazos Valley Worldfest this year ” said Katelyn Brown, interim executive director of the Downtown Bryan Association. “Both Family Festifall and Brazos Valley Worldfest provide fun, educational opportunities for families in BCS, and so together our partnership will allow us to offer so much more to the community.”

New this year will be an International Restaurant Passport that will take place the entire month of October. Multiple restaurants in Bryan-College Station will be highlighting international cuisine and some will offer specials. Visit International Restaurant Passport.

“Although this year has brought additional challenges, we knew we did not want to cancel our programs,” states Kim Fox manager, Brazos Valley Worldfest. “We are excited about the new opportunities it offers to partner with Family Festifall, create new activities such as the Restaurant Passport and our World Explorer Virtual Walk, and to share our outreach mission virtually.”

Brazos Valley Worldfest, the Downtown Bryan Association, and Destination Bryan are now accepting virtual exhibitor applications.
