UNITY PARADE

The Unity Parade of Flags will kick off the International Day of Friendship Celebration. In the spirit of friendship, we will have our youth and country delegates carrying the flags of all 193 countries that are member states of the United Nations. Starting at 1:00 PM, delegates and parade marchers will walk from the Brooklyn Bridge to Cadman Plaza Park where Delegates from each country will stand and hold hands, with youth from all neighborhoods across Brooklyn forming a human chain around the park. As parade marchers stand with their country’s Delegate there will be a ceremonial handing off of the flag to show the significance of bridging the gap in generations and throughout the world’s people.

CULTURAL PERFORMANCES

Culture is a cornerstone of national identity and pride. International Day of Friendship will highlight performances specific to continental regions to expose Brooklynites to the rich diversity found in their backyard. We will be giving organizations the opportunity to highlight countries’ culture through reading, dances or music. These performances will start at 2:30 PM on Sunday August 2nd. These performances are sure to be a treat for those who are in attendance.

CONTINENTAL CUISINE

What better way to orientate yourself with a new country or culture than through food and drinks? Food is a very important part of a person’s day, so why not nourish the people of Brooklyn with unique cuisine from all around the world? International Day of Friendship will give Brooklynites a unique treat; there will be tents set up and filled with delicious food from around the world all provided for free. There will be at least two restaurants per continent with one restaurant per tent serving food on August 2nd.
