At 10:15 am line-up for the Parade of Nations in front of the stage in the gym. Please grab a flag from your background and line up. We will parade around the school for all to see the wonderful costumes and flags.


There will be stage performances all throughout the day. Please check the board by the stage for the full line-up and for any changes in the plan. Everyone gather by the stage at the end of the day (around 2:30 pm) for some group dancing and a lot of fun.


In the hallways you have the opportunity to buy cultural and ethnic items from many countries. Have fun shopping!


Please buy your food tickets in the cafeteria at the ticket sales tables early to avoid the rush. Each ticket costs 50 cents. There will be boards next to the tables indicating the cost of the food (how many tickets). Buy more than you think you need – you will want to try many different plates!

We have food from 9 different countries available: Malaysian, Indian, Filipino, Greek, Korean, Polish,
Bosnian, Sudanese

We also have pastries from Daube’s.

The cafeteria is open from 11 am until the food runs out.


The cultural and organizational displays are all in the gym. Be amazed by the many different heritages and international connections Rochester has! Talk to the people at the displays – that’s what they want and are there for. Everybody there is a volunteer trying to give you great information about their background. We want you to have a truly interactive experience.


The children’s activities are intermingled with the displays in the gym. The tables will be marked. There are lots of crafts, a book reading and give-away, poster drawing, balloons and more. Everything to keep the children interested and active!
