The 11th World Festival of Youth and Students was held from 27 July to 3 August 1978 in Havana, capital city of Cuba. The festival was attended by 18,500 young people from 145 countries. The motto of the festival was “For Anti-imperialist Solidarity, Peace and Friendship”. The proposal to hold the 11th festival in Cuba was supported at the 10th General Assembly of the World Federation of Democratic Youth held in November 1974 in Varna, Bulgaria. The First Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba approved a resolution on hosting the 11th Festival.

It ended on 5 August 1978 with a huge demonstration in the historic Plaza de la Revolución José Martí.
