About the Cultural Festival

Welcome to the 14th Edition of the ISN Leiden Cultural Festival!


The Cultural Festival was born thirteen years ago, with the purpose of bridging cultural diversity to celebrate the world's myriad of cultures. Ever since, it has been the biggest ISN event in Leiden. Each year the event attracts thousands of participants, both students, and the local community. 


On the 25th of April 2020, the 14th edition of the ISN Cultural Festival will take place at Scheltema in Leiden. During the festival, you will explore the different countries represented, as they showcase their culture through food, performances and workshops.

Besides experiencing a culinary adventure, there will also be live global music and performances to set the mood. Come enjoy Orchestra, Bossanova, and much more. Workshops will included; henna, the SpiceGuys' curry-guessing workshop, Japanese calligraphy, and the local mosque's poetry (as it will be in the Holy Month of Ramadan).


Come and celebrate cultures together with us this  April!
