61st Annual World Unity Fair to be held Saturday

Colorado State University’s International Student and Scholar Services are hosting the 61st Annual World Unity Fair from 3 p.m. – 9 p.m. in the Lory Student Center B Ballroom on Saturday.

“The World Unity Fair is a great chance to showcase culture and feel like you have traveled the world in one night,” said Aimee Nord, program coordinator for the International Student and Scholar Services.

The event will feature ethnic food, an international bazaar with cultural items and delicacies for sale, and an assortment of 26 cultures.

“It showcases the cultures, and they participate in different ways, whether it is having a booth or performing at the stage show,” Nord said.

The headlining entertainment of the evening will feature a world talent show in the Lory Student Center Theatre that includes lively music and dance.

“This year we have 13 groups performing both traditional and modern cultural entertainment,” Nord said.

The fair is a well-established event and attendee numbers have gradually increased each year. This year, the ISSS is expecting a crowd of 4,000 people.

“It started in the 1950s, and it began as a way to celebrate international week, which occurs on campuses across the US,” Nord said.

Colorado State is home to 1,300 international students, and many participate in the event.

The fair is open and free to the public.
