There are so many things to do during your cultural exchange experience and if you haven’t put CAEP Fest on your calendar yet, here are five exciting reasons why we think you should join us at CAEP Fest 2019!


We have SO many fun things planned for you and your fellow trainees and interns at CAEP Fest 2019! We will kick off the weekend on Friday, July 19 with yard games, food and drinks, a welcome dinner and then finish the day by dancing the night away with a LIVE DJ!

Saturday will be complete with a day spent by the lake, attend a local community festival, share your culture by waving your country’s flag in the Ashby Appreciation Days parade, give back to the community by participating in a group service project, enjoy delicious meals and drinks, attend the community’s street dance, listen to live music, and much more! Don’t forget, throughout the weekend CAEP will be giving away prizes and will give away an Apple iPad as the grand prize!


CAEP Fest will be held in conjunction with a local community festival and presents a great opportunity to learn about the local culture as well as sharing your own customs and traditions with the locals. CAEP will walk in the community parade and participants will have the opportunity to wave their country’s flag and share their favorite music from back home.

Free Food and Drinks? 

Enough said!


We will be giving away prizes throughout the entire weekend and will announce the grand prize winner on Sunday who will take home an Apple iPad!
