SAINT LOUIS, MO — Festival of Nations is an event held by International Institute of St. Louis or IIST from June, 19 to August, 29. Their vision is to create a diverse, inclusive and thriving community. As part of human beings, they want to create an inclusive community with cultural experience. This event concludes traditional dance, music, ethnic food, cultural and educational exhibits, folk art demonstrations, and an international market.

Festival of Nations is the way to enrich the life where the culture bridges inspire actions. Everyone in the town could join this event, so buckle up and fasten the seatbelt! You are going to show your culture and engage with the culture! Festival of Nations also aims to create a connected and productive society, specifically for immigrants and their families. An inclusive society will be formed by joining this event.

IIST itself provides host services for more than 5,000 immigrants and refugees. They also provide English classes, citizenship preparation, job services, counseling and small business development in order to adjust with the residents, so there would be a diverse society. IIST is working on a program that is trying to do a cross-cultural understanding.

Festival of Nations will take place at Tower Grove Park, and of course, with free ticket. Prepare your best outfit to join the Festival of Nations and feel the ambiance of diverse communities. Get along, sing a song and prepare some space for your tummy since you will get a chance to taste the delicious meal from different cultures! For further information, kindly check their website on
