Pangea — Cultivate Our Cultures Saturday, November 13, 10AM - 4PM Hjemkomst Center
This fall marks the return of our annual multicultural festival Pangea — Cultivate Our Cultures. 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.
A Taste of the World
Join us in the auditorium for A Taste of the World, where you'll find an international selection of food and drink. Our menus from previous festivals regularly include fry bread tacos, egg rolls, stir fry, chicken tikka masala, and more!
Stationed around the Hjemkomst Center's galleries and halls, an International Bazaar offers a variety of shopping opportunities, as well as booths exploring local cultural heritage and social services.
Set in Heritage Hall, the Pangea Stage offers a diverse set of entertainment all day, ranging from dance and musical performances to demonstrations. The setlist is designed to introduce festival visitors to a wide range of our community's cultural diversity.
