Welcoming Week

Welcoming Week is a chance for neighbors – both immigrants and U.S.-born residents to get to know one another and celebrate what unites us as a community.

Everyone is invited to the following events hosted by YMCA of the Inland Northwest and World Relief Spokane. Join us to learn more about different cultures and make new friends!


International Festival  |  Saturday, Sept 15  |  1 – 3pm  |  Central YMCA, 930 N Monroe
Join us as we cook traditional food from many different cultures. You will sample foods from around the world and connect with the people who made them. Share stories and culinary secrets while engaging in cultural traditions.

Garden Party  |  Tuesday, Sept 18  |  4 – 7pm  |  North YMCA, 10727 N Newport Hwy
Help prepare our community garden for winter. Participants will get to take home produce to enjoy from the garden. We will wrap up with dessert and coffee while making connections.
