The 20th annual International Festival at the University of Colorado at Boulder promises a slate of sights, sounds and tastes from around the world, and will run from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, April 24, in the UMC Ballroom.

Faculty, staff and members of the community are welcome at the free, public event.

Students from more than 25 countries or regions from across the globe will share their culture at booths, while students and professionals will offer live performances. Samples of world cuisine will be served.
Some 2,500 people are expected to attend the event, which aims to promote and celebrate diversity and provide a platform for international student groups to represent their culture. In 2005, the International Festival was named best cultural event of the year by the Cultural Events Board.
