Announcing World Refugee Day 2013


Join us for our World Refugee Day Festival, 2013

Join us for our World Refugee Day Festival, 2013

This year marks the fifth annual World Refugee Day Festival. On June 20, the world celebrates World Refugee Day to honor the courage, strength and determination of those who are forced to flee their homes under threat of persecution, conflict or violence.

The Columbia refugee community celebrates this day a month later with our World Refugee Day Festival to support the heritage and cultures of local refugees and immigrants who now call Columbia home. The free event will be 5-10 p.m. on Saturday, July 20 at Broadway Christian Church (2601 W. Broadway). It’s open to the public and we encourage the whole community to come out for a potluck, music, games and crafts.

If you are interested in volunteering at the event, please contact Katie Freehling at We welcome help of any kind, including set up, clean up, photography and everything in between.

More details will be posted on our Facebook page as July 20 draws closer. We hope to see you there!
