A highlight of the annual Unity in the Community celebration is the Cultural Villages. Unity is the Community is in it’s 23rd year and the Cultural Village 2017 will be ready for its 12th year and showcasing the many cultures that are represented in Spokane.
In the past we have had villages debuting representing countries such as Germany, India, Burma, Bulgaria, Turkey, Persia, Tonga, The Federated States of Micronesia, South Africa, and West Africa. Some villages have been here since the Cultural Village debut in 2006 — The Scandinavian villages, Hmong, Mexico, China, American Indian, just to name a few.
Our main entrance has been built again this year by Dennis Miller & Jack Eskeberg from the Hoo-Hoo Club. Each person who comes through the village entrance will be given a passport. They will take this passport to each village and it will be stamped as they go through them. The passport can then be used to get school supplies for children in grades K – 8.
Most people who live in Spokane will never set foot in many of these countries. We are pleased to be able to bring some of these countries to you.
