BYU World Fest celebrates international cultures Nov. 17-20

World Fest, Brigham Young University’s annual celebration of international cultures and people, will take place Tuesday through Friday, Nov. 17-20, in the Wilkinson Student Center as a part of International Education Week.

Students, faculty and community members are invited to participate in the events. A complete schedule of events is available online at internationalservices.byu.edu.

The festivities will commence at noon Tuesday in the WSC Garden Court with an opening ceremony featuring a Chinese dragon and cultural performances by Living Legends. Visitors may then enjoy daily performances at noon, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., may visit the 40 cultural booths and learn firsthand from BYU’s international students.

On Thursday at 5 p.m., visitors can savor authentic cuisine from around the world at the popular Food Fest in the WSC Garden Court. The fare will include Brazilian feijoada, Japanese sushi, Mexican tamales, French éclairs and German strudel. Dishes are nominally priced between 50 cents and $1, and tickets may be purchased at the door.

A three-course banquet and international entertainment extravaganza featuring students in their traditional dress will bring the week’s celebration to a close Friday at 6:30 p.m. in the WSC Ballroom. Tickets may be purchased at the WSC Information Desk for $10 or at the door, if not already sold out, for $12.
