Travel the world with the 2012 Country Fair

October 12, 2012

El Mariachi Jalisco

Which country has four official languages? Where was football (soccer), rugby, cricket, boxing and golfing invented? Which country produces 800 different kinds of beer? Find out the answers to these and many other questions at Loyola University New Orleans’ Country Fair Friday, Oct. 26, sponsored by the International Student Association and the Center for International Education.

The fair, featuring food from around the world and displays from more than 25 countries, takes place from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. in the Peace Quad. In the event of rain, festivities will move inside to the Danna Student Center’s St. Charles Room.

Music from Baton Rouge’s El Mariachi Jalisco and traditional Mexican dancing by Mexico y sus Raices from New Orleans will greet Country Fair attendees.

The Country Fair seeks to showcase and celebrate Loyola’s diverse international community by encouraging students to represent a country by hosting a table featuring clothing, decorations, crafts or food relating to their country as a way to share its culture or heritage with others.

To apply to host a table or for more information, contact Kristy Magner at kmagner@loyno.edu or visit http://www.loyno.edu/cie/country-fair.
