WorldFest celebrates cultural and ethnic heritage of UC community

Annual cultural celebration kicks off Feb. 28

The University of Cincinnati's premier cultural celebration WorldFest kicks off next week with a series of events that encourage students, staff and faculty of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds to express, share and celebrate their cultural and ethnic heritage. In conjunction with UC's Bicentennial, the 2019 theme - "Through Time: 200 Years, Over 100 Countries, Only 1 You at UC" - examines diversity on campus from a historical perspective. Participants are encouraged to explore the significance of their heritage and how it has contributed to who they are and what they represent today.

The WorldFest Opening Ceremony will be held Thursday, Feb. 28, from 4:30 to 8 p.m. in the Tangeman University Center's Great Hall. The celebration features performances, table booths, activities and food from around the world. Guests are encouraged to wear cultural attire.

Ongoing events will be offered until March 10. WorldFest is presented by UC's Division of Student Affairs and Ethnic Programs and Services.
