Join us for a day of culture, education, and fun with our 150 international YMCA staff members, hailing from over 24 different countries. Some of the countries participating in the fair include Spain, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, Thailand, Jamaica, Jordan, Turkey, and many, many more. Each country will have its own booth full of informative displays, fun facts, and traditional music. There will also be live performances, so make sure to bring your dancing shoes!
Miguel Arbizu, a YMCA staff member from Spain said about the fair, “What I like most about the International Fair is having the opportunity to get a glimpse into many different cultures, mindsets and lifestyles. It’s such a great opportunity to open your mind to new ways of seeing the world!”
In addition to the opportunity of visiting over 24 countries in a day, Miao Au, a YMCA staff member from Peru said, “The International Fair is an amazing opportunity for us to keep being an ambassador of our country and talk with members and guests about what makes each of our countries so special.”
What better way to celebrate our nation’s birthday month than by exploring the many heritages, cultures, and ethnicities that make up our beautiful country. Make sure to stop by YMCA of the Rockies—Estes Park Center on Wednesday, July 19th between 5:00—7:00 pm on the porch of Ruesch Auditorium for the fair. The event is free and open to the public.
