This is a past event.

World Refugee Day 

When: Wed., June 20, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. 2018
Price: Free
In an era when the leaders of our country have openly condemned refugees in America, take some time out to celebrate refugees who now call Pittsburgh home. On World Refugee Day, a party will be held at Market Square with performances, speakers, food vendors, craft vendors, and children's activities. Refugees and immigrants will be celebrated, and a U.S. Citizenship ceremony will be performed for 10 local immigrants. The First Lady of Braddock and fellow immigrant, Gisele Fetterman, will emcee the event. The party is hosted by a cavalcade of refugee and immigrant support groups, including All for All, Jewish Family & Children's Service and Northern Area Multi-Service Center. Most food vendors are cash only. -Ryan Deto
