The College’s International Club and the Student Leadership and Involvement Office invite the community to the Third Annual International Festival on Wednesday, April 18, from 5-9:30 p.m. at the Central Campus, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell.

In the event of inclement weather, the festival will be moved indoors into the cafeteria located on the lower level of College Hall.

Students, representing about 23 countries, will transform the outside quad area into a multi-cultural celebration with food and exhibits representing their unique cultures. Guests are invited to interact with the students, sample the different cuisine and learn about their countries and customs.

A variety of cultural performances—including Irish-step dancing, Korean pop dance, Latin music, Nepali dancing and belly dancing—will be performed throughout the evening. An 80/20 raffle will be held to raise funds for disadvantaged children in Columbia.
