Join us 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.
Al-Bahira will be performing Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the Festival, representing the nation of Egypt (on behalf of the Egyptian American Society) and the Persian (Iranian) ethnic group. Our performance features World Stage shows with beautiful folklore dancers and live percussion.
We hope you'll come see us, and check out all of the other delights the festival has to offer, including the Egyptian booth in the cafe, sponsored in part by our friends at Marina Grill and Deli. (Just ask our dancers about our favorite dish, the koshary Masri--yum!)
