For nearly 85 years, the Festival of Nations has inspired people throughout the region to discover more about our world and embrace the rich cultural diversity brought to us by immigrants from around the globe.

In 2017, the Festival will continue its legacy as the longest running multicultural festival in the Midwest and, once again, collaborate with more than 90 ethnic groups to create a truly unique experience – one that celebrates cultural heritage and provides our community’s immigrants with a platform to express their stories through world-class performances, exhibits, ethnic cuisine, and personal connections.


India Association of Minnesota represents India's culture including food at the Cafe, cultural performances, exhibits and goods at the baazar.

At the Festival of Nations we are able to renew a sense of pride in our respective ethnic heritages.
