Twin Cities World Refugee Day 2023
June 11, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Coming June 11, 2023!
#TCWRD is a Festival That Aims To…
Recognize the thousands of refugees living in our state and celebrate the diversity of cultures and experiences that they bring to our community.
Raise awareness around refugee issues, including: international conflicts and violence that create refugee crises, the refugee resettlement process both here and abroad, and the challenges and opportunities faced by refugees after resettling in Minnesota.
Build a cultural bridge between longtime Minnesota residents and our newest community members.
This celebration of culture and life brings Minnesotans together to recognize and uplift the diverse gifts that refugees bring to our state. Event-goers enjoy free live entertainment, food and vendors from around the world, children’s activities, a community resource fair, and interactive educational displays. In partnership with the City of Brooklyn Center, join us on June 11 at Centennial Park (6301 Shingle Creek Pkwy, Brooklyn Center, MN) from 12 pm – 5 pm!
