Festival of Cultures coming to Northwestern March 9

February 27, 2009

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s International Student Association and Spanish Club will present the Festival of Cultures on Monday, March 9, at 6:30 p.m., in the Student Center Ballroom. Tickets cost $6 for adults and $3 for students. Children under 4 attend for free.

“Anyone who comes will have a great time,” Julie Barraza, international student adviser, said.

“This truly is an event for all ages. Every person will come away knowing a little bit more about the world and our international students on the Northwestern campus.”

The international students and the Spanish Club will serve wide varieties of food including Mexican pasta salad and tortilla pinwheels, Caribbean Mac-n-cheese, Hungarian gulyas soup, Nepaly bara and pani puri, and Trigle from Zimbabwe.

During the Festival of Cultures there will be a live Hungarian cooking show, Chinese tea ceremony, demonstration of the didgeridoo, which is an ancient aboriginal wind instrument from Australia, and a taste of the cultural dress of Nepal.

The Spanish Club will show how to make God’s eye ornaments and Mexican decoration flowers.

“I encourage the community and students of our campus to come and enjoy the Festival of Cultures,” Barraza said.
