Join Good Eats & Meets as we set off for an adventure to The Columbia International Festival. The festival showcases the music, culture, food, and performing arts of the various cultures, nationalities, races, and language groups represented in South Carolina. The event brings all of the area's international communities together to build better community/race relations between various ethnic/cultural/language groups and with the South Carolina community at large. Estimated attendance for 2009 was 8,000-10,000.
The largest yearly international event in South Carolina and neighboring states.
An indoor event attended by approximately 15,000 people in each year
Global Education Day. Up to 4,000 school children from all across the state will attend this one-day educational event on April 16, 2010 as part of the 3-day festivities. Our theme for this year will be announced soon. We plan for students to enjoy a 45 minute presentation designed especially for them, by a team of South Carolina Educators, that will highlight cultural celebrations from Hungary. Students will also be able to "visit" cultural exhibits from about 60 different countries.
