2016 Festival of Nations Turkish Exhibit and Cafe Volunteers are Needed!!!


Dear Turkish American Community Members, Please come join us this year again at the 2016 Festival of Nations to help share our culture and food with our fellow Minnesotans. Come volunteer at the Turkish Cafe and the Turkish Cultural Booth. Join us for this 4 day event as many days as many hours as you can. This is the most fun event we all participate each yer where we meet so many fellow community members, make new friends ad spend time with old friends. If your parents/relatives are visiting from Turkey have them come and spend the day wit us where they will get to meet a lot of people and talk Turkish all they long. If you are not Turkish or have ties to Turkey but would like to meet a bunch of fun loving Turkish Minnesotans, make connections and get to know Turkey better you should sign up too. The Cafe income makes up a great portion of our associations income that allows us to host many free or low cost events for our community and gives us the ability to participate at cultural exchange activities through out the year. So your participation is highly needed. The cultural booth does not generate any income but it is where we get to educate Minnesota School Children in out culture and your beautiful traditions and country on Thursday Friday and General Public during the rest of the Festival. We create a great deal of visibility and Good Will through our Cultural Exhibit. This year we are show casing Turkish Mythology and Folk Stories as well as the art of Karagoz Hacivat Shadow Puppetry. It will be an extremely fun Exhibit to come volunteer at. Volunteers will get a free admission ticket to the Festival of Nations to use on the dates they volunteer.

Call Esra Riggs 612-309-3942 or Nefsin Pullis 651-442-4288 up on arrival to be greeted at the door and to get your admission ticket.
