The largest multi- cultural event
of the year

OUR VISION
a diverse, inclusive and thriving community.
An inclusive society – achievable or a dream too far? An inclusive society is a cultural experience. An immersion to diverse cultures that will enrich our lives. It is achieved when we bridge cultures and inspire action. It is not accidental, it is deliberate, in words and deeds.
An inclusive society is a festival – the FESTIVAL OF NATIONS! The Festival of Nations is a deliberate step towards building an inclusive society where all can grow to their fullest potential. A chance to wine and dine, a musical spectacle, a story told, a showcase of the thriving entrepreneurial spirit of this diverse community. An opportunity to engage in cultures other than one’s own, and to enrich each person’s worldview in a meaningful way.
Take action! Create awareness, showcase your culture, and engage in new experiences! An inclusive society is possible when we act. The Festival of Nations is the opportunity.
About the International Institute of St. Louis

The Festival of Nations is hosted each year by the International Institute of St. Louis (IISTL). For over a century, we have welcomed immigrants and refugees from around the world, fostering inclusive growth in the process.
Our mission and vision is to provide opportunities for immigrants and refugees to thrive in order to create a welcoming, prosperous, and healthy region for all. These opportunities span all facets of life: family, health, community, career, culture, and much more. We know that when our neighbors thrive, our region thrives, and when our region prospers, we have even more chances to prosper. Learn more about the International Institute at iistl.org
