Spring Cultural Fest set for April 22 at UAPB


The annual Spring Cultural Fest is set for Tuesday, April 22, at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.

The event will be held from 6 to 8:45 p.m. in the Adair-Greenhouse Building auditorium and will feature food from various cultures, fashions, live music and dance.

Hosted by Janette Wheat and her Families Across Cultures Class, the festival theme is “International Cuisine: The Different Spices of Cultures.” Attendees are encouraged to bring a food dish to share.

“The purpose of the cultural festival is to promote unity, demonstrate an appreciation and tolerance for a diversity of cultures, and showcase an array of international foods/cuisine, fashions, arts, music, mores, traditions and customs of multi-ethnic families’ way of life within a global society,” said Wheat, assistant professor and interim chair of the UAPB Department of Human Sciences.
