"Join Al-Bahira Dance Theater for the Twin Cities' biggest celebration of cultures and diversity in our community! Come to the 2015 Festival of Nations at the St. Paul RiverCenter!
More than 100 ethnic groups participate in the festival to share their traditions, customs, food, arts/handicrafts, music and dances. You can see beautiful dance and music performances on three stages, watch educational demonstrations, shop the international bazaar, and sample the culinary delights of many different nations!
Vendors and organizations represent non-profit educational and ethnic organizations.
