In December of 2018, a small group of Plainfield residents and community leaders met to discuss creative ways we, as a community, could come together and enrich the lives of our children, ourselves and the friends around us. We gathered many ideas as a group and determined there was a strong desire to have a multicultural event here, in Hendricks County.
The HC International Festival was created to introduce diverse cultures to members of our community, to support, encourage and increase awareness for the many cultures who live, work and reside here.
On Saturday, October 5, 2019, Plainfield hosted the Inaugural Plainfield International Festival at Talon Stream Park.
The festival is organized and supported by the Town of Plainfield, Plainfield Community School Corporation, Hendricks County Community Foundation, Cruise Planners - Mike & Jenifer Laver, Kiwanis Club of Plainfield and several community members.
