World Refugee Day

When: Sat., June 18, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. 2016

For the 15th year, Boise will celebrate World Refugee Day but this year, there are a couple of twists: The main celebration shifts from Grove Plaza to City Hall, with music, food, international crafts and a naturalization ceremony which takes place 10:30 a.m.-noon.

"We have refugees who were doctors, farmers, teachers—a myriad of people from foreign lands," said Kara Fink, outreach and partnership manager for the Idaho Office for Refugees. "Today, they're our neighbors and this event celebrates what they bring to our community."

Later that day, the celebration moves to Ann Morrison Park for Boise's first World Refugee Day Soccer Friendly.
