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 or region 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.
