International Culture Exchange Group (ICEG) is a leading producer of arts and entertainment experiences that celebrate and promote diverse cultures. ICEG embraces cultural understanding and tolerance. We believe that in order to promote greater cooperation and respect among people of different backgrounds, it is imperative to break down social barriers and misconceptions. The memorable cultural experiences that we create aim to achieve this goal.
Lulu Huang, Founder and President
As a young girl growing up in her native country, China, Lulu Huang realized there was a need to promote diverse cultures and promote greater cooperation and respect among people of different backgrounds. She developed a vision to provide cultural education through entertainment during the holiday season. The historic Chinese Lantern Festival fueled Lulu’s passion for achieving high goals and bringing others along with her in the process. She is committed to strengthening the cultural exchange among children and families she lives by an ethic of “taking care of each other and the environment”. Her ultimate goal is to establish schools for poor children around the world.
In 2011 she started International Culture Exchange Group (ICEG), a Fremont, California based organization, to help make that vision a reality. Since 2011, ICEG has produced several cultural events and celebrations – including Global Winter Wonderland. Global Winter Wonderland is the first and largest such festival ever presented outside of China. It features elaborate outdoor displays of vibrant color, dazzling lights, and eye-catching designs that contain illuminated lantern displays of iconic landmarks from around the world, fantasy forests, interactive mazes, Santa’s village and more!

Global Winter Wonderland fills this void while also bringing different cultures together to experience this very special event.” -Steve Van Dorn, President & CEO of the Santa Clara Chamber of Commerce and Convention Visitors Bureau.
