Cultural food, crafts and authentic entertainment are in store for ESM's second annual district-wide Festival of Nations from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday March 2 in the ESM Central High School gymnasiums.
The free event is a cultural celebration of ESM's own diversity with booths representing more than a dozen countries and regions. Booths will have information, cultural displays and food samples. Each gym will feature a performing arts arena where students and area dancers will showcase their talents.
New this year is an international dinner plate consisting of a choice of German, Italian, Indian or Japanese cuisine provided by Wegmans and served by ESM's culinary arts students. Dinner is $7 per plate which includes a beverage. Serving will begin at 6 p.m. on a first come, first served basis. Held during National Foreign Language Week, there will also be opportunities for visitors to learn simple language terms in a foreign language.
Students, staff and parents are organizing the booths and entertainment that will represent each country. The project involves ESM's Foreign Language classes, DECA Chapter, Advance Placement (AP) World History, art classes and culinary arts program.
