UNC Greensboro will host the 36th annual International Festival (I-Fest) – a celebration of world cultures featuring food, arts and crafts, music, games, exhibits and performances – this Saturday, April 14, at Kaplan Commons (Elliott University Center lawn) from 12 to 5 p.m.
More than 30 countries from across the globe will be represented at the event, which is free and open to the public. Performances include Bollywood dance by UNCG Jalwa and traditional folkloric dance by Imágenes Latinas. Attendees will participate in language and trivia games, try on traditional clothing and enjoy free food samples.
The King-Queen Haitian Cuisine food truck will also serve food during the event. Free parking is available throughout the entire campus.
“I-Fest is one of the largest and longest-running events at UNCG,” said Stephanie Guzman, international programming coordinator at UNCG’s International Programs Center and one of the organizers of this year’s event. “It is a celebration of culture that brings together the campus and surrounding communities and offers opportunities to connect and learn together in an open, welcoming environment.”
