Holiday's Around The World

Sister Cities of Louisville will be part of
the Frazier Museum's exhibit Holiday's Around the World.

This exhibit gives visitors the opportunity to learn about holiday traditions found throughout Louisville's diverse communities with a visually-stunning and multi-cultural tree display.
This exhibit ranges from trees decorated as they would be in countries that observe Christmas
to cultural displays showcasing other holidays, cultures and religions observed around the globe throughout the year.
Being part of this exhibit gives people the chance to learn about the culture of the different
Sister Cities and is a wonderful way for our youth here and abroad to learn about the nine sister city relationships.
This educational display will run from Thanksgiving and will end on New Years.

Past Events

Day of the Dead

On November 2nd the Quito Committee celebrated the Day of the Dead! The Day of the Dead is a traditional celebration in Ecuador and is observed by Ecuadorian families that gather together for a day long remembrance of their ancestors and lost loved ones.

Attendees shared culture, food, and language, serving a traditional fruit drink; Colada Morada and Guagua de Pan which is a sweet bread shaped like swaddled infant.

Here is a picture of a Guaguas de Pan with a Colada Morada.

Guests also had the opportunity to hear from I.U. Southeast students about their experience in Quito through video presentations.

St. James Art Show

This year we welcomed Artist: Mr. Wu from Jiujiang China to demonstrate his art at the St. James Court Art Show. Mr. Wu had told us that the purpose of being apart of the St. James Court Art Show was not about the profits made but about teaching the people of Louisville about Chinese culture and specifically traditional Chinese art. If he was able to show the people the meaning of Chinese art then his mission would be accomplished. We are happy to see the impact that Mr. Wu has had on the people through art demonstrations, through the displays from the Art Show and from being a Jiujiang representative. You can check out more pictures from the festival below!

Worldfest 2013:

We had plenty of visitors who came to visit our booth this year! Thank you to all who came out to see us! The weather was perfect for the interactive game that we had outside of our booth. We are also glad to see that the beer kuzi's and water bottles came in handy. A big thanks to the volunteers who helped with set up and being apart of our booth; you guys could not have been better! Let's make Worldfest even better next year!

Ramadan Dinner 2013

Sister Cities and the Louisville Turkish American Community held their Second Annual Ramadan Dinner to highlight Louisville's new sister city of Adapazari, Turkey. The event was held at the Turkish American Association of Kentucky's venue on Bardstown Road, where guests enjoyed a speech about SCL board member Brenda Payne's recent trip to Turkey with Greater Louisville, Inc., followed by a delicious dinner to break the Ramadan fast. A great time was had by all, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!
