Description

The UNC Charlotte International Festival is a celebration of people, places and culture vibrantly displayed through exhibition booths arranged in colorful marketplace style representing the cultures of more than fifty nations.

The festival is centered around booths arranged in colorful marketplace style representing the cultures of about 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 festival, which is family-oriented, offers a number of elements such as mimes and face painting designed specially for children.

In addition to the hallmark elements, this year’s festival will include a new feature – an international games zone for attendees of all ages to participate in and learn about the cultural significance of various games. Participants can learn the rules of bocce, play a game of life-sized chess, or join in a soccer match.

The festival was one of the first events in the Charlotte area to recognize the region’s growing international dimension. Attendance at the festival in previous years has been estimated at 10,000.
