Campus, community invited to experience the world at long-running International Food and Culture Fair 

The International Student Association at Pittsburg State University will once again host the annual International Food and Culture Fair on Saturday, March 5, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts, 1711 S. Homer St.  

The event has been held annually for at least 25 years as a way for the campus and community to taste international cuisine from more than 15 counties and see cultural performances from more than eight nations.  

"Through this event, the community of Pittsburg has the opportunity to learn about other countries, try new food, and support international students who are excited to give back to the community by sharing their culture," said Brenda Hawkins, advisor for the International Student Association and a coordinator in the Office of International Programs & Services. "Those who attend will have the opportunity to experience the world in one night, without even leaving Pittsburg." 

Food samples will be served from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. in the lobby and art gallery as supplies last. A cultural show with live performances will begin on stage in the Linda and Lee Scott Performance Hall at 7 p.m. 

Admission is $1 at the door. Food samples are $1 each while supplies last. Cash only. 

The event is sponsored by the International Student Association, PSU cultural student organizations, community volunteers, and the Office of International Programs and Services.
