Country Fair 2012
This year, the Country Fair will be held on Friday, October 26, 2012 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!

Mariachi Jaliso, based out of Baton Rouge, is composed of members originally from Cuba, but with more than 10 years of experience playing Mariachi music.
DJ Santiago Caicedo Vásquez, from Crescent City Radio, will be broadcasting his show "Los 15 Principales" live from the Country Fair! This special broadcast, "Se nos viene el mundo", will feature the hottest music from around the globe and the usual weekly Latin Top 15 countdown.
