Celebration of International Cultures and Local Diversity through Education, Food, Arts, and Cultural Performances
In 2022, SMSU partnered with Visit Marshall and the City of Marshall to launch a new event that built on the 30-year tradition of International Food, Entertainment, and Education at SMSU. The first WorldFest in 2022 was an overwhelming success drawing over 1,000 attendees to a full day of ethnic food, cultural performances, and global experiences. The event brought together the SMSU community with Marshall and regional residents in a celebration of the many cultures in southwest Minnesota. WorldFest is the area’s biggest global celebration of the year. WorldFest 2023 is poised to eclipse the success of 2022 with even more food options, performers, and expo booths to introduce participants to new countries, cultures, and members of our community.
We are proud that WorldFest is an inclusive and welcoming celebration of world and local cultures and diversity.
