University of Wisconsin Eau Claire Events

The International Folk Fair is one of the largest cultural events in the Chippewa Valley. This annual event has been taking place at UW-Eau Claire for over 50 years. The International Folk Fair brings together different campus and community groups to share their cultural traditions through food, dance, music, language, art, and much more. This event is free and open to the public. The groups will sell food and cultural items and all of their profits go to the organization or charity of their choice. Upon entry to the event, visitors receive a “passport”. Each room in Davies represents a different culture or country. Travel from room to room and learn about a different culture. You could sample a patatas bravas from Spain, have your name written in traditional Chinese calligraphy, practice origami from Japan, watch a traditional folk dance from featured professional performers from the Twin Cities, and so much more without leaving Davies!•Open to the public- family-friendly•Free Admission•Food and Cultural items for sale•Recommended to bring cash to try all the different food optionsSponsored by: UWEC Student Senate, WQOW News 18, and Volume One

Art Amplified- A chance for our groups to highlight different art forms in their culture, whether it be through painting, sculpture, poetry, theater, etc., each art form tells a unique story.
