Event Schedule

Cancellation of the International Festival 2020

After much deliberation and consultation with the University administration, the Office of International Programs regrets to inform you that we will be canceling the International Festival for Fall 2020 in the interest of the health and safety of all. 

We know that this will be most difficult for our student groups and community members who look forward to the International Festival each year. We have decided to postpone the International Festival for our 45th anniversary in Fall 2022. During these unprecedented times, the Office of International Programs remains committed to celebrating our diverse and globally-enriched campus and Charlotte community which we call home. 

Please direct any questions to: globaleducation@uncc.edu

For previous International Festival event information please see the 2019 schedule below for your reference. The 2022 schedule will be up in late August/early September of 2022.
