Put on your favourite ethnic attire and come celebrate cultural diversity on campus! This event is a celebration of the University's cultural diversity. It is an event that looks to showcase some of the international cultures we have on campus.

Join us on the Village Green from 1 - 3pm for free ethnic food tasting, cultural performances, cultural arts and crafts, and a national dress parade with prizes up for grabs!

Then from 3pm we kick off with our very first 5km colour fun run/walk. Check out for all the event and registration details. There is a $10 registration fee for the colour run, but you'll also receive a free white t-shirt and wristband for the first 50 registrants, and all proceeds will be donated to UNITE Aotearoa.

The focus of the day is to bring to the attention and awareness to all of the diverse range of cultures represented in our student body, and allow our International students the opportunity to contribute to University culture and community. The involvement of the wider Hamilton community also aims to bring awareness of the valuable contribution of International Students, which we hope will bring about better integration and positive inclusion.
