MN - Twin Cities Chapter

Event: Festival of Nations

May 7, 2016 @ 10:00 am - May 8, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

For nearly 83 years, the Festival of Nations has inspired people throughout the region to discover more about our world and embrace the rich cultural diversity brought to us by immigrants from around the globe.

In 2016, the Festival will continue its legacy as the longest running multicultural festival in the Midwest and, once again, collaborate with nearly 100 ethnic groups to create a truly unique experience – one that celebrates cultural heritage and provides our community’s immigrants with a platform to express their stories through world-class performances, exhibits, ethnic cuisine, and personal connections.

We are excited to announce the 2016 Festival theme…Folklore & Fairytales! This theme is sure to inspire some particularly fascinating programming from all of our participating ethnic groups. Stories truly have the ability to illuminate cultural perspectives and connect individuals like no other medium, so what better way to learn about a new culture or language than through the stories its people hold most dear?
