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 2015, the Festival will continue its legacy as the longest running multicultural festival in the Midwest and, once again, collaborate with more than 80 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. Held at the St. Paul RiverCentre, the Festival of Nations offers the opportunity to develop an appreciation, rather than just tolerance of other cultures as we build for the future together.
Nepal Earth Quake - Help Needed
We are deeply shocked and saddened by the situation in Nepal caused by the second biggest earthquake witnessed by the country in a very long time.

We know a lot of help will be needed immediately for disaster relief and long term for rebuilding.
