The annual UPEI Global Village Multicultural Festival takes place on Saturday, November 17 at 6:00 pm in McMillan Hall of the W.A. Murphy Student Centre at UPEI. The Global Village Organizing Committee is excited to invite to the community to celebrate the diversity and friendship of our beautiful island by attending this free event.

The festival brings together various ethno-cultural groups and community organizations in an effort to build a more comprehensive working model of the area’s cultural mosaic. To celebrate this rich heritage, UPEI students host an annual multicultural festival to gather cultural representation from the university and PEI. The Global Village is an exciting opportunity to bring domestic and international students and community members together to collaborate, promote, explore and learn about each other’s cultural background in an interactive and engaging way.

“Not everyone has the opportunity to go out and see the world, so it’s nice to be able to bring a little bit of the world here for everyone to enjoy,” said Russell Kleinveldt, one of the members of the Global Village Organizing Committee and an international student from South Africa in the Master of Education program.

This September, the number of international students enrolled at UPEI is the highest in its history, amounting to just over 25 per cent of the student population. There are more than 70 countries represented in the international student body at the university.
