International Culture Night set for March 7

February 21, 2013

IntlCultureNight-webEAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will host International Culture Night at 7 p.m. March 7 in Schofield Auditorium.

The event's theme, "A World With No Culture," will revolve around one question: What would the world look like without culture?

The event, which is open to the public, will include traditional music and dance, a global fashion show and play, in addition to free food from around the world.

"This year we are also aiming for International Culture Night to be more educational in addition to entertaining," said Kristine Rivall, publicity manager for the event. "It really is a great event that is unique for the Eau Claire area. It is a taste of international diversity and culture in our small, Midwestern town."

Tickets, available at the Service Center, 715-836-3727, are $8 for adults and $6 for UW-Eau Claire students. Children ages 4 and younger are free.

The event is sponsored by the Malaysian Abroad Diversified student organization, the Residence Hall Association and Blugold Dining as well as Eau Claire businesses Egg Roll Plus, Long Chang Market, China Buffet, Pad Thai and Just Local Food.
