A tradition cherished for over 35 years will once again take place this fall.  The University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire will host its annual International Folk Fair on Sunday, November 2 from noon to 4 p.m. in Davies Center.  


New this year, the International Folk Fair will feature a unique theme: Fabrics of the World.  The theme highlights different patterns, textures, and colors of the world; integrating them into cultural representations.  The folk fair aims to celebrate the various cultures in Eau Claire; although we come from different backgrounds, we are all a part of the Eau Claire community.  


Thirty student and community organizations will participate in the event.  We invite you to celebrate this festivity with us.  Participants can sample different cultural delicacies, learn about different cultures and their unique history, and watch live entertainment - all right here in Eau Claire!
