Campus to hold Multicultural Festival

Code Red Entertainment is hosting the Multicultural Festival May 2 in the quad at California State University, Stanislaus. The event will be from 10:30 a.m. till 2:00 p.m. and will highlight various cultures that surround Turlock, the campus and the community.
The event recently had a date change but that isn’t stopping the event coordinators from achieving their goals.
“Even with the last minute schedule change, my committee and I didn’t let that bring us down,” Code Red Entertainment Multicultural Coordinator Stephanie Oquinn said.
The cultures represented will be Irish, Portuguese, African, Indian, American and Persian.
Participating clubs will each represent a different culture, including Young American’s for Liberty representing the United States, Indian Student Association representing India and the International Education office representing Iran and Persian cultures, with others to be decided.
The Multicultural Festival will feature music and performances from different cultures, including a Bollywood dance group and an African drum and dance group.
Students will also get the chance to enjoy cultural food and take part in activities that they may have never tried before. Another booth will allow students to decorate his or her own fanny pack to represent international travel. Students will have the chance to enter a raffle for the ultimate gift basket full of traveling necessities.
This event sounds like a great opportunity to learn about other cultures as well as have fun. Being more culturally diverse is something everyone can benefit from. Accepting other people’s cultures and beliefs can make us more understanding and in turn make the world a better place.
“Hopefully the festival has a great turn out topping last year,” Oquinn said. “We are looking forward to celebrating the diversity on our campus and in our communities, so we hope students really enjoy it.”
