Feast of Nations
55th Annual Feast of Nations
About Feast of Nations
The University of North Dakota’s first ever Feast of Nations was held in 1961. Organized by students in UND’s International Organization, it started as a small group of people preparing a dinner in order to share their cultures. The Feast of Nations has now grown into the biggest multicultural event in the region. This is a celebration of culture, community and diversity. Today, the banquet offers a taste of the world through skillful performances, cultural displays and delicious food. Tickets sell quickly so call soon!
