The UNCG International Students Association (ISA) and The International Programs Center (IPC) invite the community to attend the 23rd annual International Festival Saturday, April 16.

The free, outdoor event will be held from noon to 5 p.m. by the Fountain outside the Dining Hall.
Affectionately known as “I-Fest,” the festival is held to promote cultural awareness and appreciation through music, food, crafts, demonstrations and entertainment from across the globe. The International Festival will be a learning opportunity for all who attend, a chance to experience the diverse world in which we live. Visitors will be able to see, smell, and taste international culture.
This year, nearly 40 booths will dot the lawn of the Fountain area with live entertainment throughout the afternoon from different cultures, including Latin American, Middle Eastern, Greek, Chinese, African, Indian, and more.
Community groups, restaurants, and/or entertainers are invited to host a booth, offer a taste of another country, a cultural display, a musical and dance performance, or simply an informational exhibit. For more information, contact the International Programs Center at (336) 334-5404.
