ORONO – The University of Maine held its annual Culturefest fair Saturday.
The event featured performances, more than 50 exhibits highlighting different countries, and a taste of international cuisine.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for relationship building and meeting people from a country you may have not heard of or don’t know a lot about. For me personally, it’s all about creating friendships,” said Orlina Boteva, director of UMaine’s Office of International Programs.
Boteva said about 1,500 people attend the event annually.
