The Core Team for Culture Fest has been working ridiculously hard to put together an awesome event this semester celebrating the richness and beauty in the diversity within Cornell and the Ithaca community!

“In response to last semester’s acts of hatred and hostilities towards various communities on campus, student organizations prompted a proper response in which we, the students of Cornell, have decided to come together and showcase our culture and diversity. The idea has come to fruition and the event has been named Culture Fest, taking place on Sunday, March 25th, 2018 in Barton Hall. Each participating group plays a vital role in Cornell’s rich multicultural community. We would love for you to take part in this event and celebrate with us! With an expectation of over 1,000 people in attendance, this is the time to present and rejoice in the brilliance of multiculturalism, focusing on the idea there there's unity in acknowledging our differences."

If you are interested in showcasing your organization at Culture Fest - whether it be through food, performance, a booth, or another approved activity of your choice (just ask us!) - please fill out this short google form by next Friday, March 2nd!

Even if your org has already reached out to us, please fill this out anyways! This will allow us to have a central compilation of all orgs involved in Culture Fest.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email the team at!

Hope to hear from you all soon, and stay tuned for all the promo headed your way in the coming weeks! ;)
