Come one, come all, to the International Candy Swap! Please RSVP on the Fedora Wiki.

It is just like it sounds. Since Flock 2015, Fedora contributors gather to share small pieces of where we come from in our various journeys around the world to get to Flock. At one evening of the conference, we gather people together, spread out several tables, and everyone "contributes" their confectionery item to the table. Typically, we have representation across several countries and multiple continents!

Once all the sweets, candies, and snacks are laid out and arranged, we ask every participant to share a sentence or a story about what item they brought and why that item makes them think of home or why it is important to them. Once everyone has shared the story of what they brought, it is time to taste and enjoy!

Typically, we offer people who brought an item the chance to have first tastes. Because we always have more than enough, anyone who did not bring a treat is welcome to try whatever is left after the first round of tasting.

OPTIONAL: Participants are encouraged to dress in ethnic outfit or dress as part of the candy swap to represent their homes and what they bring with them to Flock.
