Global Fest gets funding for 2012

GLASGOW — The Glasgow-Barren County Tourist and Convention Commission agreed Tuesday to continue its financial support of Global Fest in the Barrens.

The festival takes place on Sept. 1 in downtown Glasgow.

The commission agreed to contribute $2,000 to the festival — the same amount it donated in 2011.

Alma Glover, founder of the festival, spoke to commissioners on Tuesday.

“Global Fest is a cultural awareness festival for those of you [who] don’t know what Global Fest is. If you come from the city, you know that most cities have something, a dealing with cultures in their communities,” she said. “We just feel like this would be a way of bringing our community together and helping children understand we all live here together and we all need to work together to help each other regardless of [our] culture.”

She continued that the festival committee does its very best to put together a good festival and that it capitalizes on its children’s activities each year.

The money the commission contributes to the festival is applied toward the children’s activities each year. In 2011, the commission also contributed $2,000.
