Performers from Taiwan, Japan, Mexico, Brazil and India will participate, and several international student organizations will have booths with food, crafts and information available. The Institute of Texan Cultures also will have a booth, where they will display several cultural artifacts from the institution.
There also will be several raffles throughout the event. Food booths will include French cream puffs, China rice cakes and churros, first-come, first-served.
The Global Business Club, College of Business International Programs and the UTSA Office of International Programs will sponsor the event, which is free and open to the public.
