A popular event since 1989, the International Festival has taken attendees on a trip around the world—without leaving Michigan—to enjoy some of the music, foods, fashions and traditional dances of many cultures. The annual event has provided thousands of students and community members the chance to experience food, culture and fashion from around the world through booth displays and performances brought to life by WMU international and cultural RSO’s. Although virtual, International Festival 2021: Keeping Us Connected will continue the long-standing celebration of the diversity of WMU students. The three-night program will feature video submissions from international and cultural RSO's as well as discussions on the importance of global engagement by University students, staff, faculty and administrators.
