From our partner, the Saint Paul-Nagasaki Sister City Committee:
Festival of Nations is the largest and longest running multicultural festival in Minnesota, celbrating cultural diversity with food, music, demonstrations, exhibits, and dance. Look for performances by Sonsei Yonsei Kai dance group and tasty Japanese food at the food booth. Kimono wearing demonstrations, origami folding, and a bazaar booth featuring Japanese goods will also be featured.
Advance tickets will be available April 2nd through May 3rd 2013 at all Twin Cities Byerly’s locations or at the International Institute of Minnesota.
Advance Adult: $10.00 (or $12.50 at the door)
Advance Youth 5-16: $7.00 (5 and under free when accompanied by an adult).
SPNSCC will be assisting the Sansei Yansei Kai in running the Japanese food and demonstration booths. Volunteers are needed on all days of the festival. We’d love to have some JET Alums help out – if you are interested in volunteering, contact JoAnn at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know you are JETAAMN.
