The Twin Cities will host its 11th annual World Refugee Day celebration in 2017 on
Sunday, July 16th from 1-5PM at Loring Park

Twin Cities World Refugee Day recognizes the contributions of the more than 101,800 refugees living in Minnesota and honors the diversity of culture and experiences they bring to our community. As an organization that values this diversity, we invite you to join us in the celebration as a resource fair participant.

We will provide you with a table and two chairs. You will need to bring your own tent or canopy. We encourage organizations to work in teams so you can meet with potential clients and volunteers, and then have time to explore the rest of the festival. More than 40 refugee-serving organizations and over 1,000 community members are expected to participate and we wouldn’t want you to miss out!

Registration to be a 2017 Resource Fair vendor is now closed.

Please contact Samantha Vang at with any questions.
