The participants include The Ukraine, Spain, Philippines, China and a renowned Finale display. Sunbelt Rentals OneWorld Festival will play host to various activities including live performances, cultural pavilions, ethnic food booths, a children’s village, OneWorld Bar and Beer Garden, and a night market.

The first night of the festival will feature Dance of Fire – a pyro-musical team that will be representing the Ukraine at GlobalFest.
