The 50th annual International Food Fair at Andrews University will be held in the Johnson Gym from noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday, March 30. The event has free admission and is open to the public. Food tickets will be available for sale at the door and are required for acquiring items at the various booths.

The International Food Fair is your opportunity to get a taste of world diversity without a travel agent. More than 20 international clubs at Andrews participate in the fair every year, offering authentic tastes of various countries in Europe and the Caribbean, Korea, Brazil, India and the Philippines, among others. Guests can make a meal of one cuisine or gather a little something from each ethnically decorated booth.

Hungry guests can sip bubble tea while choosing from a variety of vegetarian entrees including Samosas, Indian chapati, pansit and the traditional rice, noodles and eggrolls. Those looking for American fare can find corndogs, pizza and some cotton candy. Brazilian flan, passion fruit mousse and numerous other pastries and cakes from a range of cultures offer a sweet finish to the meal.

The International Food Fair has been a tradition celebrating the diversity of Andrews since 1964. Nearly 5,000 people attend the event every year, raising around $30,000 annually for the participating clubs.

Food tickets are sold in increments of 50 cents, with food prices ranging from 50 cents to $6. Students can charge the cost of tickets to their Dining Services accounts.
