Au Pairs: Make New Friends at Indy’s Many Cultural Festivals

Indianapolis has long been known as a “City of Immigrants.”  The city’s long history of immigration means that Indy has a global feel.  Whether you’re interested in connecting with people who share your culture, or learning about someone else’s, there are so many opportunities to make friends and expand your cultural vocabulary in Indianapolis.  Mark your calendars for these summer and fall festivals (more will be added as they are announced), where you can meet visitors, long-time residents, recent immigrants, exchange students, and others who share your passion for cultural exchange!
