Celebrate Nepal at UW April 12
The growing population of University of Wyoming students from Nepal aims to expose the UW community to Nepali culture through dance, music and food at the annual Celebrate Nepal event Saturday, April 12.
Activities begin with vocal, band and dance performances, and a sword presentation, from 5-7 p.m. in the College of Arts and Sciences auditorium. It is free and open to the public.
Afterward, from 7-8:30 p.m., Nepali cuisine will be served at the Wyoming Union Ballroom, along with an after-dance party. Tickets are required for the dinner, but they’ll be distributed for free at the Wyoming Union information desk starting at noon April 8-10 to people with UW ID cards (two tickets per card).
Celebrate Nepal, supported by the Associated Students of the University of Wyoming and other UW depart with Wyitorium. It is frements, has been staged annually since 2009 and is one of the biggest international events at UW. It is hosted by Friends of Nepal at UW (FNUW), a recognized student organization that was established in 2009.
