Each February, the Foundation for International Understanding Through Students (FIUTS) puts on the largest multicultural student event at the University of Washington. CulturalFest is a two-day event that celebrates the diversity and talent that international students bring to our campus and our region. It welcomes thousands of globally-minded visitors of all ages and backgrounds to the University of Washington for cultural exploration and learning.
