We will do everything possible to make sure we have the International Food and Music Festival on another date. Thank you for all your work so far!
This festival provides a great way for American and International students, faculty, staff and multicultural student organizations to share a taste of their home culture and cuisine with the Tulane and New Orleans community. This is an event that spotlights our diverse international community at Tulane. In keeping with New Orleans' tradition of spring festivals, this festival is meant to bring Tulane's international community together and showcase your food and culture to each other and the community of New Orleans! International students and scholars bring so much life and diversity to this area – this festival is our big chance to come together and celebrate this contribution.
So what makes New Orleans festivals, and this festival in particular, so GREAT? Food, for one! We'll have food from all over the world! Music, for two! Many students have volunteered to perform, and we're bringing in different bands as well to play a variety of music. Number three? We'll have cultural displays and activities so that everyone who attends will have lots to learn and enjoy!
