“The International Festival is UCO’s way of celebrating International Education Week, a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Department of Education,” said Jared Scism, assistant director of international programming at UCO.

“This event provides citizens of Edmond the opportunity to learn about some of the largest populations living in their community firsthand without needing to leave Edmond.”

International students will showcase their culture through food, performances and displays. Countries, cultures and regions that will be highlighted at the festival include Africa, Arab, China, India, Iran, Japan, Korea, Latin America, Malaysia, Nepal, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Southeast Asia and Vietnam. 

The festival is free and open to the community. For more information, contact Scism at jscism@uco.edu.
