Festival of Nations, May 1-4
Are you interested in participating in one of the premier multi-cultural events of the year? The International Institute is now accepting applications for Festival of Nations volunteers! The Festival of Nations is celebrating its 82nd year May 1-4 at the St. Paul RiverCentre. The Festival of Nations is the largest and longest running multicultural festival in Minnesota, celebrating cultural diversity with food, music, demonstrations, bazaar, exhibits, and dance. This annual celebration of our diverse community attracts 50,000 people each year. It would not be possible without the commitment of hundreds of volunteers who work a 3 or 4-hour shift staffing booths, helping with setup and teardown, cleaning tables, and greeting visitors. Volunteers will receive free admission to the Festival. Those working on Thursday or Friday during student hours (Thursday, 9-3 and Friday, 9:30-4:30) will receive a complimentary ticket for use over the weekend.
Metro Transit is one of our sponsors this year and we have a free bus pass on our web site that can be downloaded and gives the volunteer a free bus ride to, and from, downtown St. Paul. It can be downloaded from www.festivalofnations.com.
For more information, and to apply to volunteer, please visit our web site: http://festivalofnations.com/ and click on “Volunteer”. The International Institute would greatly appreciate your participation.
