Intercultural Festival has been a Grand Valley tradition since 2005, but has roots dating back as far as the founding of Grand Valley State College in 1963. We host this event each year as a way to recognize the ways in which we are all diverse. Intercultural Festival recognizes that culture represents a spectrum of traits in people that are not only confined to ethnicity. This festival is a way to recognize how we all belong to a culture and that we should celebrate it. We want our guests to enjoy good food, music, dance, displays, and most of all, we want them to walk away having learned something new about a culture different from their own experiences.
