Annual International Festival Supports Diversity & Scholarship
The Ohio State University at Marion is pleased to host the 3rd annual international festival, A Taste of Culture, Wednesday, May 12, 5-9 p.m., at the Alber Student Center on the Marion campus.

A Taste of Culture will play host to a multitude of informational booths, live entertainment, food from around the world, arts and crafts, and short educational discussions. Bringing together the customs, traditions, color, and flavor of peoples from diverse ethnicities highlights what organizers feel made the event successful in its first two years. Admission for this annual event is free and open to the public.

Local vendors, restraurateurs, and community members will provide samplings of food representative of ethnic cuisines from across the globe. Donations are encouraged and will be accepted for purchase of food tickets to sample the food on hand. Proceeds from donations for food items will benefit minority scholarships at Ohio State Marion.
