World Refugee Day 2019 – Pittsburgh | Fri June 21, 2019
It's Pittsburgh 8th annual celebration of World Refugee Day!
The event is open to the public and admission is free. There will be food and craft vendors, music, dance, speakers, and kid’s activities, all representing diverse cultural backgrounds. Many of the refugee and immigrant vendors are cash only, so be sure to keep that in mind as you come out to celebrate!
World Refugee Day is held on June 20th every year to commemorate the strength, courage, and perseverance of millions of refugees and is a chance for the public to show support to the families and individuals that have been forced to flee their homes. World Refugee Day – Pittsburgh is also a time to recognize gifts that refugees and immigrants bring to our community and to celebrate their hopes and dreams as they resettle in the United States.
