IPC announces the 37th annual International Festival (I-Fest) on the University’s campus Kaplan Commons (Elliott University Center Lawn) on April 6 from noon to 5 pm. I-Fest is one of UNCG’s largest and longest running events that brings together the campus and surrounding communities for a celebration of culture and global learning.

“This event is the perfect way to celebrate our international community in Greensboro” says Maria Perdomo, UNCG alumnus. “Diversity has always been one of the things that I enjoy the most about Greensboro and UNCG’s campus. I-Fest is a way to celebrate this and bring our diverse communities together.”

I-Fest includes cultural booths of around 50 countries, global learning, musical performances and international food trucks. By combining the different components of culture, visitors can interact and learn from people from all over the world without leaving Greensboro. The festival serves as a safe space for our different cultures to interact and learn from one another through dialogue, food samples, and musical and visual performances.

Open and free to the public.
