30th International Festival

 

 


The Annual International Festival at Western Carolina University has long remained an day-long celebration of our diverse world from the Cullowhee perspective. Throughout the day of education and celebration, I-FEST promotes cultural awareness and appreciation, as well as understanding of the world via music and dance, entertainment, art and crafts, and, most especially, the food from a variety of countries. I-FEST is open to all WCU students, faculty, and staff as well as the surrounding communities of Western North Carolina. Come join us in celebrating 30 years of I-FEST!
