Greer Goes Global International Festival

Spring is the perfect time of year to get out and explore Greer. And why not explore it with a citywide festival? We at Bradshaw Automotive love going to the Greer Goes Global International Festival, a yearly celebration of our city and all of our cultures.

This is Greer Goes Global’s fifth year as a festival, and it’ll be more exciting than ever before. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 14th, you can check it out for yourself. The festival features booths from over 20 countries, each with its own representative from around the Greer area. You can learn about countries from Europe, South America, Africa, and more.

Aside from booths, there are also plenty of international dishes to enjoy. In the past, there have been Greek food trucks, Mexican food trucks, and food samples from other countries.

There is also plenty of entertainment. Multiple arts and crafts activities are available for kids, like crafting masks or getting henna tattoos. Dance and musical performances will give you a taste of entertainment in different countries.

If you love sports, then you’re in luck. There are multiple sports featured that you might never have heard of before, like Kubb, Hurling, and Gaelic Football.
