World-Fest at Silver Dollar City

Stiltwalkers at Silver Dollar City World-Fest

World-Fest at Silver Dollar City

April 17 - May 5, 2013

I love all the festivals at Silver Dollar City. Each one has something special to offer so it is impossible for me to pick a favorite. 
With World-Fest I enjoy the opportunity to see performers from around the world without the need to travel abroad. Every year brings new entertainers, musicians, and cultures to the southwest Missouri theme park along with some favorites from previous years.  

Amamos Argentina fits into both the "new" and "old favorites" categories. This is the first year the group has been on the World-Fest schedule, but Los Pampas Gauchos have wowed World-Fest visitors in previous years. They are joined on stage by dancers with aerial choreography and a new twist to the classic Argentinian tango. 

New for 2013 is Spettacolo Musicale, an Italian-American performance featuring Carnegie Hall performer Aaron Caruso, Siciliian soprano Cristina Carollo, the Gondolier Band and the Spettacolo Dancers. 

Russia is represented at World-Fest by Trio Voronezh presenting a wide variety of musical genres played entirely on traditional Russian instruments. You'll hear classical works along with folk songs and popular music. 

Music from the Alps has been a part of World-Fest for several years but Streichmusik Alder is a new group at the festival. See them for Alpine folk music, traditional instruments, and their own special style of yodeling. 

Island Fire presents the traditional songs, dances, and costumes of the South Pacific Polynesian Islands including Samoa, New Zealand, and Hawaii. World Champion Fire Knife Anelu Iakopo and his dazzling flames are sure to be an amazing show. 

Other performers include Dearbhail Finnegan, Ireland's Premier Harpist, Robin Slater on the Irish bodhran and silver flute, Ecuador Manta using traditional Andean instruments, Kerry Christensen on the Swiss alphorn and Austrian zither, and Viva Italia, making the Red Gold Courtyard come alive with living statues, floral trees, a live music box ballerina, and costumed stilt walkers. 

At this writing, World-Fest 2013 has not yet opened. All photos are from the 2012 festival and will be updated as soon as new photos are available.
