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, guided Lolly the Trolley Tours, children’s activities, and more.
The 73rd Annual One World Day will be produced for the fourth consecutive year by Johnny 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 Sep 16 from 7am till midnight. For parking information and how to get to the parking lot from I-90, please visit this page.
The 2018 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.
