International Village – Come & Celebrate
There is also a local flavor to the International Village! The village is designed not just to celebrate international culture, but also to expose the cultural diversity surrounding Starkville as a community. A great number of participants are students and faculty members from other countries who work or study at Mississippi State University; their personal presence makes the International Village a wonderful educational experience for both adults and children to learn first-hand about different cultures from around the world. The International Village strives to bring a harmonic environment to the festival, with displays, fellowship, and entertainment from a variety of cultures.
