The celebration will feature performers and participants of all ages, from children through senior citizens. Students and their families will share their cultures through authentic costumes, flavorful food, and elaborate and colorful handicrafts and demonstrations. The demonstrations will include a tea ceremony from Japan, calligraphy from China, henna application from India, capoeira arts from Brazil, and belly dancing from Egypt, among others.

The World Cultural Celebration will include students, family members, and friends from over 60 countries, including Iran, Yemen, Ghana, Ukraine, Romania, and Venezuela.
