International students at PSU plan 2nd Annual Global Fest

Event will offer street food, wares, games, music


PITTSBURG, Kan. — The inaugural Global Fest event in September 2022 was so successful that the International Student Association (ISA), with the help of the Office of International Programs and Services (IPS) at Pittsburg State, immediately put plans in place for a second one. 

This month, a year of planning will culminate in the 2nd Annual Global Fest International Night Market, which will kick off at 6 p.m. on Sept. 29 in Lindburg Plaza at the intersection of Lindburg and Elm streets on the PSU campus. It will run until 9 p.m. 

Students will run a variety of country and ethnic booths with street food, wares, games, music, and more. Food samples will range from $2 to $6, cash only. Organizers describe it as a fun and interactive way to explore the many regions of the world in a lively open-air market atmosphere.  

This year, the ISA and IPS also are looking for individuals or community groups to “adopt a country” and provide their home or a community kitchen to assist an international student in preparing food for this event.
