The 44th annual International Festival, the extraordinary community event celebrating ISB’s cultural diversity, will be on Saturday, 23 November! Hundreds of ISB families from around the globe will be serving traditional food and drinks from their home countries and cultures, and will be organising games, activities and performances as well. Come for lunch, or even better, stay all day, and join in this unique celebration of the international colours, sounds, tastes and experiences that make ISB so special.

Attention: Please note that there will be no parking on campus. Please check the Parking tab below for more information and the Shuttle bus schedule.


New this year!

Every year, we look back and reflect on what could be done better to ensure that everyone's experience of the International festival is as enjoyable as possible.
That's why we decided to adopt the use of ISB payment tokens to use for all purchases made during the International Festival. Anyone can purchase these tokens at designated machines which will be placed at the entrance of the Festival. 
The token machines will be set up by Wednesday, 20 November in the Community Lounge (Annex). Tokens are sold per quantity of 5; so purchase 5, 10, 15, 20, etc. tokens at the time using your bank card or cash (paper bills).
