Taste of OSU

COVID-19 Update

The Office of International Affairs (OIA) is disappointed to announce that Taste of OSU 2021 is cancelled. Taste of OSU is an Ohio State signature event and has become a long-standing tradition over the past 22 years. Even though the event will not take place this year due to COVID-19, OIA hopes to bring back Taste of OSU in 2022. OIA extends its appreciation to the students and many campus partners who dedicate their time and are committed to share Ohio State’s rich cultural diversity each year.

Taste of OSU is an evening of cultural performances on stage, exhibits and food from around the world provided by more than 50 different international and ethnic clubs on campus.

The event is free and open to the public and more than 4,000 people attend each year. To sample the array of international dishes prepared by the student organizations, attendees must purchase $1 tickets.

As an Ohio State Signature Event, Taste of OSU is partly supported through the Student Activity Fee. If you have any questions regarding Taste of OSU, please email
