Illinois Central College will host its annual International Fair from noon-3:30 p.m. April 21 in the ICC East Peoria Campus Cafeteria.  The event will feature ICC international students and celebrate their cultures through music, entertainment, food samples and dancing.  A fashion show with traditional costumes modeled by ICC students is also planned.  Other entertainment includes Peruvian dancing and a martial arts demonstration.  A few of the countries providing informational booths and food samples include: Russia, China, Turkey and Brazil.

This event is open to the public, and families will be able to come and learn about world cultures while having fun together.  Global Village of Peoria Heights will provide attendees with a selection of coffees, chocolates, clothing and gifts from developing countries.

There is an admission donation of $2, and children under 12 are admitted free. Food samples will be available at a modest cost. Proceeds will go toward an international student scholarship fund.
