International Fair postponed

In light of the tragedy at The Covenant School this week, USN High School students have postponed this annual celebration of cultures and countries. Once students decide, we will follow up with a rescheduled date.
By Simon Fox '24 & Dhruv Reddy '24

International Club's beloved International Fair will take place in the Sperling Center from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Friday, March 31 and will include traditional performances and activities from countries around the world. Of course, the popular booths representing the cultural diversity of University School of Nashville’s community will serve delicious food as well. Attendees will enjoy a wide variety of international foods, drinks, performances, and activities, including origami, henna, and Irish dance. 

Tickets are $12 per person and $8 for children ages 6-10; children 5 and under get in free. Tickets can be purchased here or at the door. All proceeds from the International Fair will go to Nashville International Center for Empowerment to help empower refugees and immigrants with resources and opportunities that will aid them in their resettlement and equip them to be successful in the future. People working booths, leading activities, performing, or volunteering do not need to pay. 
Anyone interested in volunteering can do so in the following ways: 
  • Sponsor a booth (prepare and serve food from an international country)
  • Perform (international singing, dancing, musical instrument, etc.)
  • Lead an activity (henna, origami, etc.)
Fill out this form if you are interested in volunteering.
We are thrilled to be continuing this event and encourage everyone to participate in this beloved tradition. The fair is open to the entire USN community as well as the greater Nashville community. Please email student leaders Simon Fox '24 and Dhruv Reddy '24 or faculty sponsor High School Math Teacher Anna Dailey with questions.
