The annual Around the World Cultural Festival is set for the end of this month at Dakota Wesleyan University.

The festival will take place from 12:30 to 2 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 31, in the East Main Dining Room upstairs in the Rollins Campus Center on campus. Booths set up by DWU students, staff, faculty and even community members, represent countries and cultures from around the world. The event is free and open to the public.

This is the university's 14th year and 15th festival and DWU's Derric Ludens and Thomas Madut, advisers for the DWU Student Diversity Council, are inviting community members to participate.

"The purpose of the festival is to showcase diversity and share different cultures," Ludens said. "All are welcome to participate and share their personal culture or one that interests them, and of course, the entire community is invited to enjoy."

Visitors to the festival are issued a "passport" and take a "world tour" around the room stopping by each booth. Completed passports are turned in for a prize drawing.
