Full Circle Festival 2017

Full Circle Festival is a fundraiser for refugees in Indianapolis and a celebration of unity, reflecting the range of our city through food, art, music, and storytelling. On October 14th from 3-8pm, Monument Circle was a stage for performers of all backgrounds and refugees in Indianapolis.

All proceeds are donated to refugee assistance programs at the Immigration Welcome Center  and Catholic Ministries of Indianapolis - Refugee and Immigrant Services. Both organizations provide vital assistance to refugees in Indianapolis, including language services, employment assistance, legal advice, and access to other important services such as medical care. To invest in your community is to invest in your own success. Please help us welcome our new neighbors and support them in becoming engaged and successful citizens.

On October 14th, food trucks provided food and refreshments from five continents while attendees enjoyed music and stories that originated across the globe, landing here in Indianapolis to stay. Community organizations were stationed to educate about related issues and ways to stay engaged, artists shared their creations, and diverse communities came together. The festival culminated with a collective art project.

The goal of Full Circle Festival, in addition to raising money for these organizations, is to bring together cultures and communities that don't always share a stage. This festival is about the people, and we are excited to get as many people involved as possible. As a donor, your contribution will help strengthen a diverse community and assist newly resettled immigrants who are starting over in Indianapolis. Please consider giving whatever you can to this important cause, and stay in the loop at fullcirclefest.com as next year's celebration approaches. Come join the celebration!
