Event Description

For one night in February each year, the world shows up on the Prescott campus of Embry-Riddle. At this year’s International Festival students and the local community were treated to an evening celebration of international culture and diversity. It was the largest festival yet with 550 attending.

“If you’ve ever visited a market in an international country you know there’s a lot going on. It’s loud and festive and fun. That’s what the International Festival is like. It’s a great opportunity to get to know people from all over the world, one-on-one,” said Andy Fraher, Director of the Center for International Programs and Services (CIPS) and International Student Affairs.

International students on campus dressed in their cultural attire and mingled with the crowd exchanging information about their home country. Some even had educational materials provided by their country’s embassy to share. The delicious food was a focal point of the evening but many participated in free face painting, international quizzes, and Mehndi henna art. Additional highlights of the evening included traditional dancing performances from India, Hawai’i, Saudi Arabia/United Arab Emirates/Libya and Latin America.
