Durham Refugee Day Vendors showcase all that our refugee and immigrant neighbors bring to the Bull City community.

Walk among the tables and you'll enjoy savory and sweet flavors celebrating our global connection. Keep walking and you'll find handmade items, accessories, and apparel that bring the world into your home.

The festival booths will also highlight our community organizations and partners that help make Durham a welcoming home for refugees and immigrants.
