Chef Akihiro Kotani, the Master Chef at Hotel New Omi in Omihachiman, Japan, will be at the festival along with the president of the hotel. A sake seminar also is planned. Sarah Goretti of Goretti Vineyards will be at the Festival all three days with wine for tasting. The Goretti vineyards are located in the heart of the Umbria region of Italy near the town of Perugia.

The purpose of the sister city program is to build relationships between Grand Rapids and its sister cities by promoting understanding and mutual respect through exchanges in culture, art, education, and community and economic development. Grand Rapids Sister Cities are Omihachiman, Japan; Bielsko-Biala, Poland; Perugia, Italy; Ga District, Ghana and Zapopan, Mexico.
