The Festival included various activities such as stage performances, A Bite of the World, exhibitions, and collecting stamps.
Stage performances warmed up the whole event. Students from more than 20 countries brought a wonderful cultural feast to the audience. Their exotic songs, dances and musical instrument performances were rich in cultural color and let the audience experience the world without stepping out of the school. In the event A Bite of the World, each booth prepared ethnic food from their home countries. This was an incredible food journey for everyone.
At the exhibition area, students coming from 50 countries or regions set up their booths with pictures, posters, videos and items to show their own national cultures. The exhibition was bustling with those who tried on national clothing, took photos, tasted a variety of food, or danced happily. There were even more people looking forward to waiting for the pass to collect stamps as an exchange for souvenirs. Many people were eager to collect as many stamps as possible.
