The food is being prepared by the Trent University Chinese Student Association, the Trent African Caribbean Student Union, the Hispanic Organization for Latin Awareness, the Trent South East Asia Organization and the South Asia Association at Trent. The Trent International Student Association choir will perform some songs.

The event takes place at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church on Brock Street starting at 6 p.m. Dress is semi-formal.
