The International Festival, first held in 2007, is an annual celebration of cultural diversity and international community held at the Florida Tech campus in Melbourne, Florida. International student groups and local cultural organizations host country and diversity-themed display booths showcasing a variety of traditional clothing, informational literature, maps, flags and artifacts. Dance and vocal groups, bands and other performers (including martial artists) fill the afternoon with live entertainment on Florida Tech's outdoor stage, the Panthereum, while local eateries sell a variety of delicious ethnic foods in the Panther Plaza courtyard. Children's activities include face painting and carnival games.
