The Festival of Nations was originally put together by a group of local residents headed by Ruth Jenkins, wife of then-Mayor Peter Jenkins, under the auspices of the Mayor’s International Council. That important initiative continues under current Mayor Michael Beamish and the Festival Committee. The purpose is to recognize and celebrate the cultural diversity of Troy and surrounding area and to promote meaningful international relationships. The Festival has always been funded by donations including support from the Troy Foundation, City of Troy, and Troy Area Chamber of Commerce.
