Upstate International Month

March is Fun on a Global Scale

A Multi-County Collaboration

Of Organizations, Partners, and Communities

Welcoming, supporting, celebrating, and educating through a variety of internationally themed events, Upstate International Month promotes our rich cultural diversity, heritage, and global connections.

Since it began in 2013, we’ve had over 100 internationally themed events happening throughout the Upstate every March providing opportunities for hundreds upon hundreds of people to be introduced to a variety of cultural experiences. Upstate International is the catalyst that encourages, and the glue that holds together, all of the international events happening in March in an effort to educate and excite the public and celebrate the Upstate’s international diversity and connections.

Ready to have Fun on a Global Scale?

1. Attend & Support Events!

View the colors of the world through costume, flags, traditional dance, and demonstrations. Hear the voices and music of distant countries. Taste the flavors of a whole new world through international cooking demonstrations, galas, and festivals. Learn about the customs and languages in our diverse Upstate.

2. Host an Event!
Do you wish to share a tradition, cuisine, experience, or skill with the Upstate community? Host a UIM event! The only limitation, beyond that of your imagination, is that each event must have a cultural or international focus. If you would like to brainstorm or discuss your ideas, please contact us at [email protected] or call 864-631-2188.
3. Become a Sponsor!
All of our sponsorship levels are designed to not only help us celebrate the cultures of the Upstate, but also to recognize and promote the individuals and businesses that contribute to it. Sponsorships are available on multiple levels and packages can be adjusted depending on the goals of your business or organization.
