Friendship Festival

Saturday, June 24, 2023 (12:00 PM - 5:00 PM) (CDT)


The International Friendship Festival offers families in the region a food and entertainment experience featuring performers from six different cultures and ethnic food samples from the native countries of Pelican Rapids residents.
There will be a variety of food options from various cultures. Craft demonstrations will feature arts from around the world, and kid's activities include a piñata, a bouncy house, and kid-friendly crafts. 
The Pelican Rapids Multicultural Committee was formed in 1992 with a mission "to promote cultural awareness and foster respect, appreciation, and understanding that crosses cultural barriers by providing opportunities for dialogue, learning, sharing and socializing through art, music and food."
The goal of the Friendship Festival is to bring people from diverse backgrounds together through music and food. For new immigrants to the United States, it will be a celebration of things that they may have lost in coming to a new country. For long-time locals, it will be an introduction to sounds and flavors with which they might not be familiar but which are becoming a part of the history and culture of Otter Tail County. But for everyone attending, it will be a celebration of incredible music, bright flavors, and new friends.
