Country Fair 2015
This year, the Country Fair will be held on Friday, October 23, 2015 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the Peace Quad (rain location: St Charles room). We hope to see you there!
This free event showcases Loyola's diverse international community and gives students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to spend the afternoon "traveling" the world.
Live music, educational displays, and cuisine from a variety of countries are featured.
At the Fair, Loyola's international students as well as U.S. Americans, set up tables where they showcase a variety of items (flags, pictures, native clothing, artifacts, etc.) and food from their home countries or from countries where they have studied abroad. This is an extremely popular event; all the Loyola community loves it!
2015 Entertainment: Cuban Music by AsheSon
Country Fair attendees will be greeted by music from AsheSon. Led by Cuban-born guitarist Javier Olondo, this New Orleans ensemble performs an abundance of Cuban songs, though they also stylistically reflect members' homelands, including Puerto Rico and Guatemala.
