Global Festival

Global Festival is a signature annual event of the Office for International Students and Scholars. International students representing dozens of countries around the world come together to share their culture and talents with exhibits and demonstrations, exciting and colorful performances, and interactive dance workshops.

20170316_Website Global Festival_1.jpgThe Global Festival has something for everyone: students, community members, and families alike. Have your "passport" signed as you wander through the different country exhibits. Enjoy live dance performances or a cultural fashion show. Purchase gifts at the Gift Shop, where all proceeds are used for scholarships for international students.

The event is scheduled for Sunday, November 10th, 2019, from 12-5pm in the MSU Union. 

The Global Festival is sponsored by The Office for International Students and Scholars, MOSAIC, University Activities Board, MSU Union, Community Volunteers for International Programs, Michigan State University Federal Credit Union and Two Men and a Truck.
