Fifth-Annual Bosnian & Herzegovinian Heritage Day

Julius M. Kleiner Park, Saturday, June 29


The Bosnian War displaced millions, but the United States took in thousands of refugees—an estimated 40,000 settled in the most popular destination, St. Louis, Missouri, alone. Many others settled in Boise, leaving their mark on the Treasure Valley. For the last five years, Mladi Behar, the Bosnian-Herzegovinian cultural center, has thrown the Bosnian & Herzegovinian Heritage Day to highlight the culture they've brought to Boise. This year, that celebration will take place at Julius M. Kleiner Park in Meridian and feature folk dances, a soccer tournament, music and games. The activities are free, with food for sale from Sofra Bosnian Grill, like cevati straight from the grill, pitas of all kinds (think meat, cheese, spinach and more), and, of course, Bosnian coffee made with the grounds.
