Clemson celebrates diverse cultures at International Festival
CLEMSON — Clemson University will celebrate the diverse cultures on campus Sunday at the annual International Festival.
From noon to 4 p.m. on Bowman Field there will be food, entertainment, games and other activities from the countries represented at Clemson.
Volunteers, clubs and organizations will represent their home countries by preparing food to share with others. The organizations will also provide educational entertainment to introduce people to their cultures.
The event will feature local craft and nonprofit vendors with cultural goods. It will also include a children’s area so that families can experience and celebrate the diversity of the Clemson community.
“International Month at Clemson University allows us to learn about other cultures and celebrate our differences. Being aware of other cultures and becoming a global citizen are increasingly important during our careers at Clemson and in the future,” said Allison Howland of the Clemson Abroad office.
The festival is hosted by the Harvey and Lucinda Gantt Multicultural Center. In case of rain, the festival will move to the Hendrix Student Center.
