A quick way to get to know EP’s many cultures

Eden Prairie has almost 10,000 foreign-born residents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, giving it a wide variety of cultures, customs, languages, foods, and more.

You can get to know more about that variety in fast-paced conversational style when a new and free event called Culture ‘n Motion is held 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, in the East Commons of Eden Prairie High School, 17185 Valley View Road.

The event will have adults and kids walking table to table to experience and interact with many of the cultures that make Eden Prairie great. Table hosts representing Eden Prairie’s Asian Indians, Chinese, Somalis, and others will share interesting and personal stories of how their family histories and cultures intersect every day with life in Eden Prairie.

Refreshments will be available.

Registrations are requested; walk-ins are accepted. Register on Eventbrite.

Culture ‘N Motion is sponsored by the Eden Prairie Human Rights & Diversity Commission, Eden Prairie Community Foundation, and Eden Prairie Schools Community Education. It’s one of several events that the organizations collaborate on to encourage residents to gather and talk.
