World Refugee Day (WRD) is a global event and a time for our community to celebrate the rich cultures in Lewiston and Auburn. Each year, Maine welcomes refugees and asylum seekers from countries around the world and helps safely rebuild their lives.

Come and join us in uplifting our refugee neighbors by honoring the courage and struggles of the more than 15 million refugees worldwide displaced by war and persecution.

In addition to food, performances, games, and music, this year’s LA World Refugee Day Celebration will include a Far From Home – A Refugee Simulation & a job and resource fair.
