Taste Your World at Cultural Diversity Festival Event

Published: Feb 22, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 22, 2013) — The University of Kentucky’s Cultural Diversity Festival is a long-standing tradition celebrating unique and wonderful cultures around the world. During the month of March, a wide variety of events have been scheduled to entertain, enlighten, enrich and educate all those who choose to participate in or attend these events. 

 

One of the most anticipated events of the campus calendar, Taste of Our World, kicks off the Cultural Diversity Festival’s (CDF) month-long celebration with cuisine from around the world. This year, the culinary extravaganza highlights foods from Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East/Mediterranean, North America and South America. In its 24th year, Taste of Our World will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 27, in the Student Center’s Frank Harris Grand Ballroom beginning at 11 a.m. and ending at 1:30 p.m.  Price of admission is $5 for all you care to eat. Cash, Flex dollars and Plus Account are accepted.

 

During the Taste of Our World celebration, the festival committee members host a Ten Thousand Villages sale of jewelry, home decor and gifts. To view the kinds of items that will be on sale, visit the Ten Thousand Villages Web site at  http://www.tenthousandvillages.com/home.php. Ten Thousand Villages works with over 100 artisan groups in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to bring handmade jewelry, home decor, gifts and more to the rest of the world. As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages builds long-term relationships with artisans that are based on mutual understanding and respect. Fair trade enables artisans to earn a fair wage. It provides the opportunity for a better quality of life. Purchases from Ten Thousand Villages support artisans from around the world who receive a fair wage.

 

Members of the university and Lexington communities will be treated to diverse performances in downtown Lexington’s renovated Lyric Theatre at the other signature CDF event, the UK Diversity Festival Live at the Lyric, scheduled at 7 p.m. Friday, March 22. 

 

Be sure to take time to review all scheduled events to take full advantage of all that the Cultural Diversity Festival has to offer this year. A full calendar of all associated events is published on the CDF website at www.uky.edu/DiversityFestival, with updates added regularly. The International Fashion and Talent Night, for example, is slated at 7 p.m. Feb. 28 in the Student Center Grand Ballroom. 

 

“The success of this event is directly related to the many personalities who contribute time and effort to communicate and celebrate the diversity of thought, experiences, and culture within our campus community,” said committee co-chair Debra Ross.
