The sixth annual Center of the World Festival is expected to take place in Pine Mountain Village, located at the base of Mt. Pinos near Frasier Park, from August 15 to August 17.
Event officials, inspired by Native American tradition, encourage international songwriters, filmmakers, playwrights and storytellers to submit work related to social and ecological issues and welcome visitors to a banquet of performances.

“The Center of the World Festival’s mission is to develop a civic dialogue through the power of mutually interdependent creative arts, a ‘mixed media’ of the visual arts, theater and storytelling,” said festival officials.
On August 15, the festival will feature Native American storytellers and folk tales from the region. Contests will be held August 17 and 18, with cash prizes being awarded based on audience votes.
“These are not talent contests, but awards based upon the social themes highlighted,” according to festival officials.
Six finalist plays have been selected by community members from submissions, due April 30, and will be performed on the final day of the event.
Winners in each of the divisions will be awarded with a $500 grant prize.
“Our national outreach, our ecologically sensitive themes and our invitation to the general public to attend our events fosters respect for the environment, support of the arts and development of cultural tourism,” said event officials.
