2022 Welcoming Week – Granite Falls
September 17 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
In Granite Falls, everyone BELONGS at the CULTURAL COOKOUT at Falls Café!
On Sept. 17 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., we will have a free samples spread of foods representing seven cultures rooted in the foundation and new growth of Granite Falls. Take a copy of the recipe from your favorite dish, or leave your families traditional dish in the recipe drop box.
Local authors from the Upper Sioux Community will be onsite for a reading and book signing. A special Dakota Folktale will be read as a lead into the coloring contest featuring art inspired by the story. At 2 p.m., meet the Falls Café crew in Granite Falls Winter Park for outdoor games and prizes.
This event is part of Welcoming Week celebrations across the country, with southwest Minnesota events led by local communities and supported by Southwest Initiative Foundation in partnership with Pioneer PBS and Southwest Minnesota Arts Council.
