The city is excited to celebrate its eighth annual Beaverton Welcoming Week, coming up Friday, Sep. 9 through Sunday, Sep. 18. This year’s national theme, “Where We Belong,” focuses on the places and spaces that foster belonging. “Where We Belong” aims to go deeper and spark individual reflection on how and why belonging occurs as well as ways we can break barriers so that places can foster belonging for all, including immigrants, and refugees.
In Beaverton, we are fortunate to have several inspiring, community-led events, including six feature events that the city is proud to support through its annual Welcoming Week grants. Come out and enjoy both virtual, in-person opportunities to connect across cultures during the week! Join us to learn traditional Korean, Chinese and pre-Hispanic dances; cook traditional Ethiopian dishes and build with local Afghan families; learn about caring for Black, naturally curly hair from local stylists, and so much more!
