Patrons get taste of the world at International Food and Culture Fair

If you’ve ever been curious about Russia’s cuisine or the ethnic entertainment of Asia but lacked the funds for a transcontinental plane ticket, this weekend may offer the experience of a lifetime.

The Pittsburg State University International Food and Culture Fair will be held from 5-8 p.m. on Saturday, March 8, at the Pittsburg Memorial Auditorium. Students from Paraguay, Korea, Russia, China, Kenya, India, and Japan will be presenting traditional dishes for sample and for sale.

In addition to the food, students will be selling jewelry, crafts, and other items native to their countries. The fair will also feature ethnic entertainment including dancing and singing. Organizers are anticipating 200-300 visitors from the PSU community and Pittsburg area.
