In addition to the exciting entertainment, diverse shopping, and fresh farmers’ market, International Market World hosts annual events that are attended by Polk County residents, visitors from all around Central Florida, and tourists from around the world.
SPIRIT OF THE BUFFALO POW WOW
Every January International Market World hosts the Spirit of the Buffalo Pow Wow. This is a celebration of Native American culture with traditional foods and crafts for sale, historic artifacts on display, and an Intertribal Dance Competition. It takes place over two weekends and is an excellent chance to come out and have fun while learning about the rich legacy of Florida’s Native Americans.
ANTIQUE CAR SHOW
Once or twice a year International Market World hosts a classic and antique car show. Over 200 classic and antique cars come out to show off and swap stories. Folks drive in from around the state to take part in this fun, nostalgic event. It’s a fun, family-friendly event that gives people a chance to gather around a common interest.
In the winter months, bull rides and Spanish-style rodeos are held at International Market World about once a month. Come out and enjoy live music and all the excitement of watching expert bull riders.
