Upstate International Month

Visit the official website

March is Upstate International Month and a group of individuals from education, business, non-profit, civic and social organizations across the Upstate region have planned events to showcase the rich ethnic and cultural uniqueness of the area.

“Upstate International is a new initiative designed to celebrate the international groups among us and their contributions to our region. This initiative will educate all of us about the remarkable international diversity in our midst,” said Dr. Deryle Hope, director of international studies at USC Upstate and a member of the Upstate International Steering Committee. “There are more than 100 events celebrating music, art, religion, food and more that can be used for curricular enrichment.”

A full listing of the events planned across the region can be viewed here. The events planned for the Spartanburg area are listed below. For information about Upstate International Month, please contact Dr. Deryle Hope at 864-503-5769.
