World Refugee Day


World Refugee Day brings awareness to the refugee crisis while honoring their courage and strength. Celebrate through a festival of cultures and diversity of new immigrants with international cuisine, world music, and a photography exhibit — all featuring refugees from around the globe.

We’ve added a Family Unity Rally to our World Music Concert. Show support for keeping children and parents together at the border, in partnership with Action Together Connecticut.

2pm— World Cuisine Tasting by Sanctuary Kitchen. Ticket = $20

4pm— World Music Concert featuring Thabisa and Family Unity Rally.  FREE – RSVP so we know you’re coming!

5pm— #RefugeesofCT Photo Exhibit, various photographers. FREE

Purchase tickets here.
