Spring Festival of Nations Celebration

Each May, International House hosts its annual Festival of Nations. This year the Festival of Nations will be held on Saturday, May 20, 2017. The Festival of Nations is an opportunity for community members to share their culture with the rest of International House and the surrounding community. Hundreds of people will flood the International House doors to take part in the cultural festivities.

The Festival of Nations is a true “international day,” featuring dancing, singing, and sharing of food. It is a traditional event that dates back to the early years of the International House. Our fellow International Houses around the world also host annual Festivals.

During the Festival, tables will be set up representing different countries. While people serve food at booths, there will be dancing, singing, and other cultural performances to watch!
