|UND International Organization presents 47th annual Feast of Nations Feb. 21|
The international organization is presenting the 47th annual Feast of Nations Saturday, Feb. 21, at the Alerus Center. The Feast of Nations is one of the biggest culturally entertaining events in the whole North Dakota area.
The Feast of Nations is a multicultural event which features world vignettes, a dinner, intercultural entertainment and international attire. The meal will feature cuisine from around the world, including Arabic, Fattoush, Moroccan Harira, Cuban Arroz Con Pollo, Indian Vegetable Samosas and Italian Tiramisu.
UND students from around the globe will host the event and showcase traditional international song and dance from various countries. Ena Sutton Highland Dancers, Viva Capoeira, and Rockalypso will be performing this year. These and other cultural performances by UND students will complement the international dinner and make it a great event for UND and the whole Grand Forks community.
The Ena Sutton Highland Dancers are a company formed in 1965, who have been delighting audiences of all ages across the prairies for over 30 years. Their goal is to foster appreciation of Scottish heritage through the performance of traditional and non-traditional highland dances while performing on a social level, rather than a competitive one.
Viva Capoeira is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development of Capoeira in Winnipeg. Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art developed by slaves. These performers bring an energetic, flowing progression with elements of dance, gymnastics and martial arts to the stage.
Rockalypso was established in 1990, and is an exciting Caribbean band with talented and creative stage presence who bring to life the rich rhythms of the Caribbean.
Tickets are on sale now at the Alerus Box Office, the Memorial Union Information Desk, and The International Center. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students/children and $180 for a table for 10.
