Look for the Des Moines European Heritage Association at Global Citizenship Day at the Iowa State Fair on Friday, August 12 (today) from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Global Citizenship Day recognizes multicultural organizations in Iowa—and brings educational demonstrations, performances, activities and more to the Iowa State Fair. You can find us in the 4-H Exhibits Building. We’ll be ready to help the children craft paper ornaments (adults are more than welcome too) and to chat about our upcoming signature event—Christkindlmarket Des Moines! It’s Des Moines’ first European-style Christmas market, complete with traditional wooden vendor stalls, German foods, warm mulled wine, and handcrafted gifts to buy.
We hope to see you at the fair!
Des Moines European Heritage Association connects Iowans with European traditions, language education and cultural experiences; and it provides resources and tools to other cultural heritage organizations.
