Public Invited to Free International Festival at Embry-Riddle on March 30, 2024

The International Student Association and the Center for International Programs and Studies (CIPS) at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University invites the public to attend its free, annual International Festival from 3-6 p.m. on Saturday, March 30, 2024.

Festival attendees will be given a “Passport” allowing them to sample authentic international cuisine. The food, inspired by authentic recipes submitted by Embry-Riddle’s international student community, will be provided by Sodexo.

“The focus of CIPS is bringing the world to Prescott,” said Pauline Filemoni, director of the center. “The festival is our way of giving back to the community. We’ve been welcomed by the people of Prescott, so this festival is our chance to welcome them to campus.”

This year’s International Festival will feature activities and learning exercises, and student organizations will display clothing from their native lands while providing guests with live music and entertainment. Embry-Riddle’s Prescott Campus is home to 278 international students from 54 countries.

“We are excited to announce that the International Festival is back!” said Bernice Fung, president of the ISA. “This year’s International Festival will be a great opportunity for Embry-Riddle students, faculty and the Prescott community to learn about different cultures.”

Embry-Riddle is located at 3700 Willow Creek Road, Prescott, Arizona. Signs will be posted around campus directing visitors toward parking at the Activity Center on campus. Admission is free but donations will be accepted in support of Embry-Riddle’s International Student Fund.
