‘Culture Fest’ goes around the world in one room

Students in Free Enterprise at MTSU will present Culture Fest, a “Tour of the World,” from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, in the Tennessee Room of MTSU’s James Union Building.

Culture Fest aims to entertain and educate the public about understanding and respecting the multiple cultures that make up the United States, organizers say.

Upon arrival, guests will be given “passports” to be stamped at each nation’s booth. Nation “ambassadors” will deliver brief lectures about their culture. International cuisine, a variety of musical styles, traditional dances and unique ethnic items are all part of the total experience.

“Culture Fest was inspired by students from Costa Rica who wanted to present the day-to-day truth of Murfreesboro: Many people of different backgrounds live and work together harmoniously every day,” says SIFE faculty adviser Jean Wilson, an instructor in the Department of Management and Marketing.

This event is free and open to the public. Doors will open promptly at 6 p.m. For more information, contact Wilson at 615-898-2436 or
