UNC Charlotte International Festival
We hope you had the opportunity to join us for the 2015 UNC Charlotte International Festival on Saturday, October 17th, 2015. This past year marked the 40 year anniversary of this campus tradition. To commemorate the importance of this landmark year, the festivities will included an evening fireworks display to close the day's program. Please check back in the spring for updates about the 2016 International Festival! See below to learn more about this program.
The International Festival is centered around booths arranged in colorful marketplace style representing the cultures of over 50 nations. The booths are staffed by UNC Charlotte international students and members of Charlotte's international community and feature art, crafts and costumes from each participating country. Many booths offer international food for sale.
Throughout the day the music and dance of a variety of nations will be presented on indoor and outdoor stages. In addition, the International Festival, which is family-oriented, offers a number of elements such as mimes and face painting designed especially for children.
