Are there any cool festivals to look forward to?
Yes! The last Saturday in September is when the International Festival takes place. It’s an amazing visual, cultural and gastronomical event. Groups representing cultures from around the globe gather in native costumes, prepare their home country’s specialty dishes, play music, dance, entertain and sell goods. The International Festival has been taking place for over twenty years and both the campus and Charlotte community come out in great number to enjoy it. If you’re looking for a fun volunteer experience, go by the Office of Student Activities and sign up to help at the International Festival. In October, the Cone University Center sponsors “A Cone A Fair,” an annual fall festival where the purpose is for students to come out and have some fun. You’ll enjoy carnival games, favorite foods like burgers and candied apples and a lively festival atmosphere.
