On November 4, the lawn in front of the Wen Shi building was full of color, vibrancy, and rhythm. ECNU celebrated the Mini Expo and Gala Show, which are the classic events of the International Cultural Festival.

There were booths representing 70 countries and regions at this year’s Mini Expo. According to the Global Education Center, the number of participating students, participating countries, and performing programs have all achieved the highest numbers in history!

In the evening, the Chinese and foreign students performed together on the stage to highlight their range of talents. Participants experienced a day filled with exciting performances, mouthwatering cuisines, and captivating displays of art and traditions.
