Festival of Nations

For nearly 88 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

Following Due to ongoing concerns over the safety of large group gatherings in the time of COVID-19 and following the rationale of other event organizers,  the International Institute of Minnesota (IIMN) and the Festival of Nations have decided to cancel the event in 2021 giving the highest priority to the health and safety of attendees: participants, volunteers, staff, and community..

India Association of Minnesota will be back for Festival of Nations 2023 to represent India and its culture through Indian Cafe, spectacular cultural performances, exciting exhibits, and Baazar.

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