International food, culture, displays and performances will be available for enjoyment at Northwestern Oklahoma State University on Monday, April 18, at 7 p.m. in the Student Center Ballroom during the annual Festival of Cultures.

This event brings Northwestern international students, employees and community members together to share food and information about the students’ home countries.

Tickets to the event are $6 for adults and $3 for students (with a student ID) and children under 12. The public is encouraged to attend and learn about different cultures that have come together at Northwestern. Tickets may be purchased at the door.

Some of the featured food will include Brazilian chicken and beef pies; Nepalese turkey dumplings, chicken curry and potato pickle. Nepalese students also will be singing and dancing during the Festival of Cultures.

The event is sponsored by the International Student Association.
