Plans are underway for Missouri S&T’s 12th annual Celebration of Nations to return to downtown Rolla this fall. The event, a partnership between Missouri S&T and the city of Rolla, will showcase and recognize the cultural diversity of Missouri S&T and the region.
The event is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 25. Plans include a parade starting at 11 a.m., followed by a cultural festival.
Celebration of Nations is a family-friendly event with no entrance fee. Attendees can spend the afternoon watching the Celebrate Talent showcase and learning about other cultures by visiting a variety of food, craft and educational vendors.
“An in-person Celebration of Nations is one of the things I missed most during last year’s COVID-19 restrictions,” says Missouri S&T Chancellor Mo Dehghani. “Participating in the event was a personal highlight of my first year at S&T in 2019. It illustrated to me just how diverse and multicultural our campus is, and how welcoming the Rolla community is to our international students and scholars.”
