International Knights Festival


The International Knights Festival at ACP High School is an event that celebrates the diverse backgrounds and heritage of the student body. At this festival, students have the opportunity to showcase traditional clothing, food, music, and dance from their culture. It is a way for the school community to come together and learn about each other’s customs and traditions.

The festival took place on January 20th in the courtyard and was open to the entire school community, including students, staff, and parents. Students were able to participate by setting up booths with information and artifacts from their culture, performing traditional dances or music, or cooking and serving traditional food.

I got the opportunity to talk to Nina Sreeprasad (12), who performed at the festival. She performed a dance form called Mohiniyattam. The dance form is native to her home state Kerala, in India. In preparation for the event, Nina practiced her dance multiple times to perfect it. During the dance, she felt incredibly proud of all the hard work she put into her practices. Nina also spent some time at the different stalls at the festival, but ultimately her favorite part of the International Knights Festival was the performances.

The cultural festival is not only a fun and educational event, but it also promotes cultural understanding and acceptance among students and staff.
