UTSA community members are invited to register to host tables with information about organizations or displays about cultural traditions. Tables will be available for set-up at 3 p.m. the day of the event.
Another way to participate is a showcase from 6 to 8 p.m., which will highlight cultural traditions through music, dance, skits and telling of personal stories. Dat Phan, the original "Last Comic Standing," will emcee the event and perform in the showcase.
No matter what your experience, it probably is relevant to the event. For those participating, there will be a short coordinating meeting at 4 p.m., Nov. 16; registered participants will be contacted regarding the location.

Shortly after the registration deadline, participants will be notified of a short planning meeting to ensure smooth staging of the information fair and showcase.
