North Platte CONNECT is excited to announce that its 2nd
Annual International Bazaar will be from 4-7p.m. on Saturday, July 27th
at the Platte River Mall in North Platte, NE.
This family friendly event is FREE to the public.
New this year, North Platte Connect will be partnering with Mid-Plains United Way and the Walmart Distribution center to host the International Bazaar.
This event is an effort to bring together the diverse cultures currently represented by individuals living in the Lincoln County area and beyond, allowing them to share their culture through food, music, dance and displays.
Annual International Bazaar not only allows immigrants to share their culture and how they have adapted to Nebraskan life, but it also allows natives to experience flavors and sounds from their bucket list destinations right here in North Platte, Nebraska.
Individuals and families will be able to sample global cuisine, world music & dance, arts & crafts, cultural displays and a kids corner.
Last year, about 800 adults and children were in attendance. About 1,000 individuals in attendance are expected this year.
The following countries are currently signed up to attend this year: Japan, Philippines, South Korea, India, South Africa, Iran, Armenia, Syria, Brazil, El Salvador, Cuba, Mexico and Bahamas.
