Sunbelt Rentals’ highly diversified mix of tools and equipment is further broadened by the product offering of its specialty divisions, which serve distinct customer segments requiring a high level of technical expertise. The experienced professionals at Sunbelt Rentals are dedicated to helping their clientele solve any rental equipment challenge.

    In 2015, Sunbelt Rentals acquired Okotoks Rentals, an Alberta-based equipment rental company and long-time supporter of GlobalFest. GlobalFest strives to partner with sponsors that maintain the same like-minded ideals; Sunbelt Rentals values the celebration of Calgary’s vibrant cultural diversity, and GlobalFest is ecstatic to receive this generous support. GlobalFest would like to extend a tremendous thank you to Sunbelt Rentals for providing this essential sponsorship to the OneWorld Festival. This sponsorship will help to ensure the ongoing success of the Sunbelt Rentals OneWorld Festival and assist GlobalFest in continuing to provide an affordable program to showcase local cultural organizations and associations.

    The Sunbelt Rentals OneWorld Festival is GlobalFest’s showcase of the dynamic and vibrant ethno-cultural communities found within our city. The Sunbelt Rentals OneWorld Festival features a display of cultural pavilions, performances, ethnic food, and hand-crafted works of art hailing from cultures around the globe. GlobalFest has hosted the OneWorld Festival since the humble beginnings of the festival in 2003 and it has become an integral part of the Festival each year.

    Elliston Park opens at 6:00 PM, so come early and take in the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes that the Sunbelt Rentals OneWorld Festival has to offer. Pavilions from a variety of Calgary’s cultural communities will be showcasing their heritage dress, cultural music, incredible performances, and interactive activities for all. Take a stroll through the Night Market, featuring vendors with handcrafted arts and keepsakes. The Sunbelt Rentals OneWorld Festival will play host to additional activities on-site, including a citizenship ceremony, performance stages, ethnic food booths, and food trucks.
