The International Student Life Office (ISL) and the Department of
Student Activities at the University of Georgia invite all of you to
attend the Fifth Annual International Street Festival on Saturday, April

purpose of the event is to promote inter-cultural exchange and
international understanding in the Athens community. This Festival will
feature student organizations from more than twenty countries with
displays of artwork, crafts, costumes, photographs, jewelry, and other
artifacts. In addition, there will be dynamic cultural performances by
international students and community groups. The event is free and open
to the public. Last year the Festival attracted more than 2000 people,
