UW Students: Get Involved!

CulturalFest would not happen without hundreds of dedicated UW student volunteers. Here are a few ways you can be part of CulturalFest:

  • Join a planning committee: The International Expo and Performance Showcase are each planned by student committees with FIUTS staff. Come to the CulturalFest Kickoff to learn more about joining a committee or email to be connected with the committee co-chairs.

  • Be a Booth Volunteer: Showcase your cultures by hosting a booth at the CulturalFest International Expo and/or at the Performance Showcase. Both spaces are limited.
