Johns Creek International Festival

"Taste of the World"

The City of Johns Creek is continuing to actively monitor all the current information and guidelines released by the CDC and the Georgia Department of Health related to COVID-19. In the last two days the CDC has released additional guidelines pertaining to large public events. The CDC recommends all events with more than 50 people, occurring within the next eight weeks, be cancelled.
The safety of our vendors and festival guests are of the upmost importance. In adherence with the CDC guidelines we will be cancelling the 2020 Johns Creek International Festival.

This is not a decision we made lightly and we have the highest expectations the festival will return in 2021.


The City of Johns Creek is home to more than 83 thousand people and is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the state and nation, representing many countries and cultures from around the world.
