On April 17, an “International Cultural Festival” was jointly held by the Confucius Institute at Webster University and the International Exchange Department of the university, in a bid to introduce to the locals various cultures from around the world and promote multi-cultural exchanges. Overseas students and local cultural associations were present at the activity. They showed visitors representative cultures from Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America and the Arab world. Meanwhile, a large variety of foods were also offered to the attendees.

Many locals were attracted by the festival. They highly appreciated the programs staged during the activity, such as Chinese gong and drum, lion dance, calligraphy, tea ceremony, dancing and singing, etc. In addition, they enthusiastically participated in various games and tasted all kinds of delicious foods. A majority of them expressed that the festival held in St. Louis made them feel as though they had traveled around the world, providing them with a cultural feast. They especially admired the greatness of Chinese culture.

The Confucius Institute will conduct more cooperation with Webster University in the days to come, with the hope of helping more students and local residents understand international culture including Chinese culture through various activities.
