Welcome Fest 2018!


Welcome Fest 2018 will be on September 22nd, 2018 from 2pm to 6pm. This year, Welcome Fest will be Hosted by the Steward School Bryan Innovation Lab. 

The Purpose

ReEstablish Richmond's goal for Welcome Fest 2018 is to highlight the cultures of the refugee community and international communities in greater Richmond, and to celebrate the diversity that they bring to our city.  People attending the event will experience international cultures through storytelling, dance, music, handicraft, cooking demonstrations, and language lessons. This event will also be supporting ReEstablish Richmond and its efforts to continue supporting refugee communities around the city.


We are currently seeking vendors for this event! We welcome vendors / food / silent auction items from the entire Richmond community, especially those that celebrate different cultures from around the world. If you are interested in having your business featured at Welcome Fest, please apply below.
