Categories: Community Events

Celebrate Utica's refugee community with a day full of activity!

You can look forward to a multitude of activities for the whole family to participate in!

World Refugee Day will begin with a special U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Naturalization Ceremony to naturalize community members as new citizens of the United States. This ceremony will be followed by a wide range of activities for the whole family, including music and dance performances, an International Fashion Show, and a puppet show. The Utica Zoomobile will join the festivities and there will be opportunities to learn new crafts. Activities will also include face painting and henna designs. There will also be food trucks, community vendors and traditional handicrafts for sale from One World Artisans, a microenterprise group from the refugee and immigrant communities. Entertainment and educational displays will provide insight to refugee resettlement, the refugee experience and the amazing contributions refugees have made to Utica’s mosaic and history.

Don't miss out on this once a year event.
