UNCC’s International Festival, a popular, free festival that started in 1975, returns to the campus on Saturday, September 28th, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Taking place in and around the Barnhardt Student Activity Center, it features booths representing the culture of over 50 nations, staffed by students.
This is a free event, and parking is free too.
Music and dance will be presented on indoor and outdoor stages throughout the day, and kids’ activities like face-painting will be available as well.
