This weekend, you can travel the world without leaving Greensboro. I-Fest, UNCG’s 34th annual international festival, is bringing Russia, Peru, India, Korea, Mexico and more to College Avenue this Saturday, April 9, from noon to 5 p.m.

“When we look at the makeup of our university and our community, it’s important to come together and celebrate,” said Denise Bellamy, director of study abroad and exchange programs.

This year, there will be 64 different booths celebrating cultures from around the world with games, language learning, food, clothing, photos, giveaways and performances. Attendees will receive a passport that can be stamped as they visit each country’s booth. The goal is to spark conversation and promote global engagement at UNCG and in the community.

I-Fest admission and parking are free, and the event is open to the public. I-Fest will be moved to the Coleman Building, formerly the HHP Building, in case of rain.

I-Fest is organized by UNCG’s International Program’s Center with help from the university’s International Students Association and Student Government Association.
