The annual event, formerly known as the International Festival, has been held at the college for the past 20 years.

The campus and community experienced a diversity of cultures through authentic cuisine and dance. They also learned about unique traditions from the native lands of the students that make up the LWC International Program. This spring, LWC enrolled a total of 98 students from 39 countries including Nigeria, Paraguay, Spain, Sweden, Uganda, Poland, Senegal and the United Kingdom.
