Annual food bazaar March 8

Henderson State University’s International Student Association (HISA) will present its 17th Annual Food Bazaar March 8 from 5-7 p.m. in the Garrison Center Day Gym. International students will prepare dishes from their home countries to serve during the event and present cultural performances.

“The International Food Bazaar is one of the largest and most popular events held at Henderson,” said Dr. Drew Smith, director of the Center for International Programs. “Not only do the students and employees of Henderson attend this event, many Arkadelphia residents, as well as individuals and groups from outside of Arkadelphia, come to visit our campus and enjoy a great evening of cultural diversity.

“It is always a wonderful time of good fun, great food and enjoyable entertainment, and the students this year have been working extra hard to try and exceed the success of past years.”

Advance tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 10 and under, and $25 for a family of four, and are available in the International Programs office or from any HISA member. Tickets are $12 at the door. Proceeds will be donated to Hillcrest Children’s Home.

The bazaar is open to the public. For more information, please call (870) 230-5265, or e-mail
