I became a St. Louis resident in the Summer of 2014. My first Festival of Nations was 2016, so I only have a few memories of the Festival. My first memory was its vibrancy and interesting mix of people gathered to celebrate and appreciate the varied quilt of American culture. The best part of the Festival was the vast array of types of food in one place. The Festival will certainly be different this year as it moves to a virtual format, but the same vibrancy should be evident. Can’t wait to see how the festival continues to evolve.
