BYU World Fest Nov. 13-16 will celebrate campus diversity

Brigham Young University students can sample the world’s cultures during the annual World Fest celebration of international cultures and peoples Tuesday through Friday, Nov. 13-16.

Students, faculty and community members are invited to participate in festivities, which will commence at noon on Tuesday with opening ceremonies and a performance by Living Legends, BYU’s multicultural performing ensemble, in the Wilkinson Student Center Garden Court.

Visitors may then enjoy daily performances at noon and, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., visit more than 40 cultural booths to learn first-hand from BYU’s international students.

A three-course banquet and international fashion show featuring students in the traditional dress of their native cultures will be held on Thursday at 7 p.m. in the WSC Ballroom. Tickets are $6 and may be purchased at the WSC Information Desk through Nov. 12.

On Friday at 5 p.m., hungry visitors can savor authentic cuisine from around the world at the popular Food Fest in the WSC Garden Court. The fare will include Scottish haggis, Indian chicken marsala, German bratwurst, Brazilian feijoada and English trifle, to name a few. Dishes are nominally priced between $0.50 and $1.50 and tickets may be purchased at the door. A free cultural talent showcase will follow the Food Fest at 7 p.m. in the ballroom.

BYU International Services will host the event to coincide with America’s International Education Week. For more information, please call International Services at (801) 422-2695 or visit internationalservices.byu.edu.
