Due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19, this year's Pangea — Cultivate Our Cultures will be reformatted as a digital webcast. The annual multicultural festival will not be held at the Hjemkomst Center, but as a series of live performances and recorded demonstrations that will be shared online via Facebook and YouTube. Join us on either of these platforms on Saturday, November 13, from 10AM to 4PM to take part.
Admission to HCSCC's museum at the Hjemkomst Center will also be free for visitors who would like to explore our current exhibitions. As a note, masks and social distancing are required at the Hjemkomst Center.
For 27 years Pangea has highlighted and celebrated the diversity of our communities in and around the Red River Valley. In that time, it's become one of the community's most beloved events. A group of local chefs, musicians, artists, and merchants share the unique traditions that their families brought to the Red River Valley. Thousands of visitors join them. The museum and auditorium become an international bazaar where the flavors of chai and samosas complement the aromas of aebelskiver and lumpia and the sounds of mariachi and indigenous drumming.
At Pangea, the global roots of our community are on full display. They stretch from the Bering Sea and New England and Norway and Mexico and Bavaria and Somalia and Egypt and Vietnam and so much of everything in between.
