More than 45 organizations participated in this year’s International Bazaar, celebrating the unique countries and cultures that comprise Lehigh’s community. Musical performances, information tables, fashion shows, international foods and more were showcased during the event on April 21 on the University Center front lawn.

The Bazaar is hosted by Lehigh’s Office of International Students and Scholars and organized largely by volunteer students.

The event seeks to recognize and celebrate the unique countries and cultures represented in the Lehigh community, through musical performances, information tables, fashion shows, a wide range of international food, and much more.

Lehigh’s first international students arrived from Brazil in 1868, just three years after the university opened. Today, Lehigh’s international community includes more than 1,600 members, representing 82 different countries.

The Bazaar was established in 1986, and has been held almost every year at Lehigh, except for a multi-year pause during the Covid-19 pandemic.
