Immigrant Heritage Month 2021

Celebrating the stories and resilience of immigrant communities.

Official event information


Tuesday, June 1 - Wednesday, June 30, 2021

June is Immigrant Heritage Month! This national celebration uses storytelling to highlight the diversity of immigrant communities and to explore how personal experiences intersect. Throughout the month, the Office of Immigrant Affairs is promoting many community events, including:

  • Musical performances.
  • Educational programming.
  • Community vaccinations.
  • Immigrant Business Week programming.

In the last year, we’ve seen how our local immigrant leaders and organizations have stood up and shown up—not just for their own communities, but also for the greater Philadelphia region. This June, we celebrate community, family, food, and love, and lift up the stories of how our residents and leaders have demonstrated resilience in the midst of great grief and loss.
