International Food Festival

Nipissing University has hosted the International Food Festival each February since 2005.

The North Bay & District Multicultural Centre partnered with the university in 2008 to assist in the organization and that partnership continues.

People from the community and university bring a dish from their home country to share with visitors to the food festival. An entry fee of $10 gives you a number of tickets, which you use to sample the foods of the world.

All proceeds go toward a refugee student the university is sponsoring.

Everyone enjoyed the entertainment at the International Food Festival at Nipissing University.

There was lots of food from around the world for people to sample at the International Food Festival at Nipissing University.

Not only did people enjoy the tastes of the dishes, but they often got the opportunity to learn about the cultural significance of the food, from people such as Alex Dorohoi, above, serving a dish from his native Romania.
