By Kim Fox, Texas A&M University Office of the Provost

Texas A&M University students and Bryan-College Station community organizations are teaming up to introduce a wide array of international cultures to the Brazos Valley during the 12th Brazos Valley Worldfest at the Brazos County Expo Complex Saturday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Brazos Valley Worldfest, a 501c3 non-profit organization, celebrates the culture and heritage of all who live in the Bryan-College Station community by offering a variety of activities that include international foods, performances and cultural displays among many others.

“We are very excited to bring wonderful culture and talent from Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa, the United States and the Middle East for visitors to see, interact with and taste some of their cuisine,” Kim Fox, festival coordinator and manager, community programs for Public Partnership and Outreach at Texas A&M said.

While there is a charge for food and some activities, admission to Brazos Valley Worldfest is free and open to the public. Parking is available around the Brazos County Expo site. A list of events, dining options and activities is available on the Brazos Valley Worldfest website.

“Engaging the community is one of our major goals,” she explained. “We want our festival attendees to come away having been entertained, but also informed.”

Festival planners suggest festival attendees check the Brazos Valley Worldfest Facebook page and website for the latest news about the event.
