Festival Of Faiths Begins Wednesday

By Sheila Ash

The 15th Annual Festival of Faiths begins this week in Louisville. The festival will celebrate “Sacred Soil as the Foundation of Life.”

Event Coordinator Lauren Argo says each year there is a special event that coincides with the theme.

“We also have a Native American community soil blessing this year based on the success of last year’s community water blessing. Participants and the public are invited to bring a handful of soil collected locally or from around the world to offer as part of this ritual,” she said.

The festival will also feature several award winning films including Dirt! The Movie, and Manufactured Landscapes.

The event runs through November 9 and will be held at the Henry Clay Building. Many of the activities are free and open to the public.
