ODU International Festival Set for March 27 at Constant Center

Celebrating cultures from around the world, ODU will host the annual International Festival on Sunday, March 27 from noon to 5 p.m. The family friendly event, which will be held at the Ted Constant Convocation Center, is free and open to the public.

Hosted by News Channel 3 WTKR's Kurt Williams, the festival will feature 19 performances, highlighting cultures across the globe. Vendors in the event's International Marketplace will sell authentic Greek, Turkish, Thai, Irish, Indian, and American and Creole cuisine and arts and crafts that reflect international artistry.

The International Children's Village will present a global wonderland for children to explore, with more than 50 worldwide activity and interactive educational stations, larger than life inflatables, and a petting zoo.

"During a time when there is global unrest and division, Old Dominion University's International Festival reminds us all that we are one, yet many citizens of the world, and that is something we should embrace, value and celebrate," said Lesa Clark, assistant dean of ODU's Office of Intercultural Relations.

The activities and parking are free and open to the public; food and other items will be on sale at the International Marketplace. For more information call the Office of Intercultural Relations at 757-683-4406 or visit http://studentaffairs.odu.edu/oir/intfestival.
