Join us on June 25 at Miguel Ribera Park

Imagine being forced to uproot everything and move to a completely new country, simply because of a conflict or situation you never asked for. More than 103 million displaced persons across the globe have experienced this crisis. Since 2016, NNIC has resettled more than 500 refugees in northern Nevada who lost everything they knew to be true in their former lives. 

On June 25, NNIC will once again host a celebration in honor of World Refugee Day (officially June 20, 2023) at Miguel Ribera Park from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. 

Enjoy delicious local food, activities and music to honor the culture of our recently relocated refugee neighbors while also introducing them (and us!) to the wonderful people of northern Nevada. 

World Refugee Day hosted by Northern Nevada International Center. To inquire about sponsorship opportunities, email
