BYU International Services hosts World Fest Nov. 15-18

Brigham Young University International Services will host World Fest, a celebration of international cultures and people Nov. 15-18, during the worldwide celebration of International Education Week.

“With more than 2,100 international students on campus from more than 100 countries, World Fest is a great occasion to celebrate the rich and varied cultures represented here,” said Enoc Q. Flores, director of International Services.

Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, participants can visit the many cultural booths and enjoy free noon performances at the Wilkinson Student Center.

At the popular Food Fest on Thursday at 5 p.m. in the WSC Ballroom, hungry participants will savor authentic cuisine from around the world. Dishes are nominally priced from 50 cents to $1; tickets may be purchased at the door.

A three-course banquet and international entertainment extravaganza featuring students in their traditional dress will culminate the week’s celebration Friday at 6:30 p.m. in the WSC Ballroom. Tickets may be purchased at the WSC Information Desk for $10. Tickets will be $14 at the door until tickets are sold out.

For more information, call International Services at (801) 422-2695, email intloff@byu.edu, or visit the office in 1351 WSC. Details are also available online at https://internationalservices.byu.edu.
