WorldFest

Last year, the Council and the Town of Addison teamed for WorldFest: Spotlight on China. This year the spotlight illuminates a nation closer to North Texas: Mexico.

This celebration of the nation and its relationship with the region coincides with the 20th anniversary of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) — there's a panel program examining the historic accord scheduled April 9. And, as is WorldFest tradition, the spotlight will fall not only on political and business relationships and opportunities, but also on cultural contributions and, of course, spectacular cuisine. Stay tuned for upcoming events!
