Plans are underway for Missouri University of Science and Technology’s 12th annual Celebration of Nations to return to downtown Rolla this fall. The event, a partnership between Missouri S&T and the city of Rolla, will showcase and recognize the cultural diversity of Missouri S&T and the region. The event is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, September 25th. Plans include a parade starting at 11 a.m., followed by a cultural festival. Celebration of Nations is a family-friendly event with no entrance fee. Attendees can spend the afternoon watching the Celebrate Talent showcase and learning about other cultures by visiting a variety of food, craft and educational vendors. The annual event did not take place last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
