[ARCHIVED] Join Us: Issaquah Welcomes You--A Celebration of our Diverse Community

The City of Issaquah, the Issaquah Library and the Issaquah Schools Foundation Cultural Bridges Program would like to invite you to a fun, free, family-friendly event to celebrate Issaquah’s cultural diversity. 

Make plans to join us September 20, 2019 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Issaquah Community Center, 301 Rainier Blvd S. 

At the event, you will have the chance to visit the interactive and informational booths of local cultural and non-profit organizations, taste foods from various regions of the world catered by local food trucks and enjoy a celebration of our community through dance and motivational speakers. Embark on a journey of Issaquah’s past, present and future and meet fellow residents from all over the world. 

As part of the national Welcoming Week, this event helps build unity between immigrants, refugees and long-term residents. The City’s diversity has grown over the years – nearly 35% of the population is non-white and over 21% speak a different language. We have an opportunity to build greater connection among the cultures represented in our community. 

Everyone is welcome—Together we build stronger communities!
