The Festival of Asia at Benedictine University includes traditional Asian cuisine and performances featuring Benedictine students. Attendees can participate in table tennis tournaments, view a cooking contest and shop in an Asian-style market which features authentic clothing, jewelry, art and more.
This year’s festival will feature a dance performance by the Ray Chinese School based on the legend of the female warrior Mulan, who volunteered to go to war in place of her elderly father.
Admission to the event is $20 per person, which includes a family-style lunch. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.ben.edu/FOAreg or contact the Office of International Programs and Services at (630) 829-6354.
