Grab a friend and visit Bemidji for International Day on Friday, August 10 from 1-5 p.m., and explore international foods, games, art and performances. This year’s theme is “Courage,” a nod to our new mission of Inspiring Courageous Global Citizens.
International Day is a unique opportunity for villagers, families, friends and alumni to celebrate the language and culture immersion programs we offer—all at one site! Everyone is welcome to attend – no admission fee and no RSVP needed.
Thank you to our wonderful donors who make our programs possible!
