In 2001, June 17 was designated by the U.N. as World Refugee Day. Here in Houston, we’ve been taking the opportunity since 2003 to raise awareness about the contributions of refugees to the city, to honor the strength they’ve shown and to thank the locals that have welcomed those men, women and children into the Houston community. The rain-or-shine celebration will take over the six acres of Levy Park for an afternoon of entertainment, including music, dance, a resource/artisan fair and, of course, food from refugee and immigrant-owned restaurants, with Coreanos, Nom Mi Streets, Waffle Bus, Steel City Pops and Abu Omar set to be there.
