Project Abstract/ Summary

Culturefest is an annual event hosted by Office of International Programs and the International Student Association. This is a day-long celebration of various cultures from around the world. This is a place for our international students to showcase their cultural traditions. US students from multicultural backgrounds are also welcome to take part and celebrate their families' heritage. Each country will have a table to exhibit their traditional items brought from home. There will be a talent show with music, dances, and other performance art from different cultures and in different languages. We also have a fashion show for students to introduce their traditional clothing. For many, the best part of Culturfest is the food court which will offer a wide variety of food from around the globe.
