FoN Performance

Culture is expansive—existing on a global scale—outside of and within in the US. We would like to include as many facets of culture as possible. DU and non-DU individuals and organizations are encouraged to apply.

Performances should be a minimum of 3 minutes and no more than 20 minutes. Performance times may have to be adjusted based on the number of applications received.

Participation in the Festival of Nations is completely voluntary; performers are not paid for their performance. 

As you plan your performance, please keep in mind the event's mission. 

The University of Denver is a private University that strives for excellence, innovation, engagement, integrity, and inclusiveness and is dedicated to creating a campus climate with an ethos of respect, understanding, and appreciation of individual and group differences.

The Festival of Nations is an annual University of Denver event that supports the sharing, celebration, and appreciation of diverse cultural backgrounds, customs, and experiences among members of the University of Denver and surrounding Denver community. The event seeks to support internationalization and to foster inclusivity along with a climate of respect and appreciation of differences.

Respect of cultural diversity is required by all Festival of Nations participants and attendees. Individuals who do not support the Festival of Nations and/or the University of Denver's values and mission or fail to exhibit respect of cultural diversity will be restricted, prohibited, or removed from the event.


DU and non-DU individuals and organizations are encouraged to apply.
