North Plains Ethnic Festival set for Saturday
The Northern Plains Ethnic Foundation in conjunction with the Prairie Outpost Park and the Dickinson Museum Center present the annual Northern Plains Ethnic Festival on Aug. 21.
Even in rural states such as North Dakota, ethnicity shines through. Settler descendants from Germany, Ukraine, Russia to South Africa as well as Native Americans from Lakota to Sioux tribal members create a diverse population across the state. This holds true for Dickinson, as it gets ready for its annual Northern Plains Ethnic Festival this weekend.
The Northern Plains Ethnic Foundation in conjunction with the Prairie Outpost Park and the Dickinson Museum Center present its annual Northern Plains Ethnic Festival Saturday, Aug. 21. Opening ceremony and flag presentation will begin at 9 a.m. at the Ridgeway Lutheran Church, located at 212 Museum Drive East.
Ethnic food booths will open at 9:30 a.m. With a variety of entrees to choose from, attendees can indulge their ethnic appetites from recipes originating from Czech, Ukraine, Germany, Russia, Philippines, Mexico and Norway.
Following the flag ceremony, attendees will be able to enjoy live music from the Queen City Band and Jim Geiger at the Heritage Pavilion. Throughout the day, people will be able to enjoy and celebrate many cultures representing the Dickinson community and learn more about each ethnic group on a one-to-one basis.
