The Greater Des Moines Partnership and others are launching a Welcoming Week to celebrate cultures, culminating in this weekend’s World Food & Music Festival at Western Gateway Park. National Welcoming Week is Sept. 13-22, hosted by Welcoming America. A collection of events is designed to bring immigrants and others together. The Partnership is inviting residents to acknowledge the contributions of foreign-born residents in Greater Des Moines and offers a toolkit with a list of events to help. Hashtags include #DSMUSA, #GlobalDSM and #WelcomingWeek2019.
