World’s Fair: A Cultural And Philanthropic Success

Families, students and the general public took a trip around the world over the weekend just by hanging out at Stevenson.

World’s Fair was back and in person and not only exposed Fair-goers to multiple cultures, but also contributed a generous donation to the Stevenson Foundation. The Diversity Council (DIVCO), which sponsored World’s Fair, capped the event by presenting Linda Knapp of the Stevenson Foundation with a $10,000 check, proceeds from its food sales over the weekend.

The Fair featured booth experiences in the Wood Commons and Forum that included not only food but also activities and educational content on cultures from 30 different countries and cultural organizations. There were also performances in the PAC representing different countries.

For a fun montage of the spirited and colorful moments from World’s Fair, please check out Facebook and Instagram.
