UNC Charlotte International Festival
The 2017 UNC Charlotte International Festival will be held on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 10am-6pm. This will mark the 42nd anniversary of this annual campus tradition. Please save the date and check back later soon for updates about the 2017 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. Festival entry and parking are FREE!!! We highly recommend you consider bringing cash with you to the event. While some booths may accept card, many only accept cash; there are several ATMs on campus, but in past years, the lines can be quite long!
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.
