Hear the world in its own words

Languages from around the world will fill the air during the third annual World Language Day, to be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 30 at California State University, Sacramento. The free event includes food, music, art, dance, plays, information booths, workshops, demonstrations and more.

Last year’s event featured attractions such as Japanese origami lessons, flags of the world, puppet shows, games, a French café, mini-dramas and plays, salsa dancing lessons, short films, tai-chi, Swiss polka, Irish and Peruvian music, and henna tattoos. Many of the same presenters are expected to return for this year’s event.

The outdoor activities will take place in the Library Quad and the workshops will be held in Eureka and Mariposa Halls. Workshops, parking, and activities are free and open to the public. Registration for the workshops is available online at

The event’s organizers are still seeking entertainers, presenters or vendors to participate in the event. Members of the community, cultural groups, clubs, and high school or college students are encouraged to participate. The last day to register online as a presenter or entertainer is April 2.

For more information, contact the foreign languages department at (916) 278-6333. Media assistance is available by contacting the public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
