Pavilion Awards

Carassauga visitors enjoy an exceptional multicultural experience. Visitors surveyed indicated they would recommend the Festival to family, friends and colleagues. High standards are expected for all Pavilions and volunteers. Performance against these standards is recognized at the closing of the Festival each year at our Awards Banquet.

Pavilion Awards

Each year Carassauga recognizes those Pavilions that have exceeded the already high standards for Carassauga Festival Pavilions. Pavilions are judged against a set of criteria based on its culture food offering, the variety and authenticity of the entertainment, the cultural decor and the overall cultural experience enjoyed by the visitor. Festival judges visit every Pavilion throughout the Festival to determine the winners. Visit the Pavilions.
