Resource Fair

In addition to celebrating the cultures and experiences of Minnesotan refugees, Twin Cities World Refugee Day highlights local organizations dedicated to providing opportunities and improving quality of life for immigrant and refugee communities. We invite such organizations to join us in the celebration as a Resource Fair participant.

We will provide organizations with a table and two chairs. Orgs will need to bring their own tent or canopy, if they wish to have one. We encourage organizations to send two or three representatives so they can meet with attendees, and also have time to explore the rest of the event. More than 40 refugee-serving organizations and over 2,000 community members are expected to attend, and we wouldn’t want you to miss out!

Please fill out this Google Form to express your interest in participating in this year’s resource fair:


This page will be updated as more information becomes available. Formal registration to be a 2018 performer, vendor, or resource will be open soon.
