World Refugee Day 

Saturday, June 21

Boise constantly finds its way onto Top 10 lists for places to live, work and raise a family, and while many people grow up in the Treasure Valley or return after time away, some come from distant lands to make this their home. Refugees from all over the world come to Boise to escape conflict or seek opportunity, braving the challenges that come with making their home in an entirely new environment. With them, they bring their rich culture and unique skills, which are celebrated during World Refugee Day.

The event, which takes place at the same time as the Capital City Market, features ethnic food, dancers, poetry and a naturalization ceremony where immigrants are sworn in as United States citizens.

If there was ever an inspirational way to start your weekend, this is it.
