International Fest is your ticket to culture



My top two suggestions for anyone going to UNC Charlotte’s annual International Festival (happening this Saturday, Sept. 25): come hungry and bring cash. With around 50 nations represented and a plentiful mound of food, arts and crafts and cultural displays, this fest is tasty, fun and educating. Plus, you’ll be entertained by the “Parade of Nations” — featuring traditional attire from around the world — and live music and dancing throughout the day. No passport necessary. Free admission. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Held in Barnhardt Student Activity Center at UNC Charlotte, 9201 University City Blvd. For more information, visit
