International Festival

The International Festival, organized by the International Student Advisory Board (ISAB), is an annual celebration of international diversity at Reed College. It is a community-wide event where students, faculty, and staff members share our backgrounds, cultures, and identities with one another.

This tradition of the International Festival started in 2010 to celebrate the international community and provide an opportunity for students from over 30 countries across the globe to come together. This festival has been a great venue to share international cuisine and performances and cultural exchange within the Reed community. Students and community members are welcome and encouraged to volunteer for the International Festival.
