Please check back in January for more information about the 2017 International Festival.

Food, performances and family-friendly activities from around the world!

The International Festival is one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the year at The Claremont Colleges. It is held in the main quad of Claremont McKenna College, and the day can be spent sampling authentic international cuisine and enjoying performances of music and dance from around the world by both student and professional artists. International Festival is open to the entire community.

International Place organizes this event over several months, beginning at the end of the fall semester. Students, the various colleges and the dedicated Community Friends of International Students provide an enormous amount of support by volunteering their time, experience, resources, talent, and energy to make the International Festival happen!


International Festival will offer food from around the world. For a small fee, you can sample food from around twenty different countries. We also have a Beer & Wine Garden with a selection of drinks from around the world.
