WHAT IS THE TWIN CITIES WORLD REFUGEE DAY CELEBRATION?
World Refugee Day is a family-oriented festival celebrating the many thousands of refugees in Minnesota through song, dance, food, and story. The purpose of World Refugee Day is to provide a platform for refugee stories and artistic practices, to honor their lives, and to raise awareness for the millions of refugees in the world who have been forced to flee their homes. The festival uses art as a way of building a bridge between longtime Minnesota residents and our flourishing refugee population. The annual event is held each year in the summer by a collaboration of resettlement agencies, community based organizations, for-profit entities and ordinary citizens to recognize refugees’ journeys to their new homes through celebration and education. The festival is a proud community event that is planned and implemented by volunteers.
This event is brought to you by CAPI USA!
