About I-FEST

Throughout its 30 years, the annual International Festival, or I-Fest, has provided the WCU community with a unique opportunity, namely, a chance to engage and explore world cultures and fascinating traditions through a wide range of mediums, including Food, Music, Dance and Artistry. I-Fest is a 5-6 hour-long celebration, which occurs in early April. Festival coordinators usually expect attendance to reach between 1,000-1,500 visitors.
