Omaha, Nebraska (KMTV) — Omaha is home to many refugees from around the world. To celebrate them and the rich culture they brought to the metro, the Joslyn Art Museum will host a free event on Saturday, June 19th to commemorate World Refugee Day.
The event runs from 10 am to 2 pm and features performances, culture fairs and vendors selling food and crafts.
The event will be held outdoors on the grounds of the Joslyn Art Museum. Bring a blanket, chair, water and a picnic if needed.
If you want to help refugees in the metro, you can bring a book for children and young people and donate it to the International Refugee and Immigration Council Youth Book Donation Drive.
The Douglas County Health Department hosts an on-site vaccine clinic for those who still need vaccination.
This event is made possible thanks to the partnership between the Joslyn Art Museum, the Omaha Refugee Task Force, and the Omaha Public School Foundation.
