Welcoming Anchorage

Tradition Tuesday

As part of “Welcoming Anchorage”, we are conducting Tradition Tuesday, which will occur in the Loussac Library Atrium from 6:00pm-7.00pm. Our ultimate goal is to build dialogue, provide cultural enrichment and relationships within the community. By connecting with each other, we want to make Anchorage safer and stronger.

The Municipality of Anchorage Mayor’s office cordially invites the public to Tradition Tuesday because Anchorage is home to the most ethnically diverse schools and neighborhoods in the United States. Tradition Tuesday is a platform for communities and cultural groups to come to Loussac Library Atrium to showcase their community and culture as we are eager to learn more about the diverse place in which we live. Each cultural group is welcome to bring in their traditional food, presentations, art, songs, pictures or anything they see fit for the event as well as sharing traditions about their community.

For the public, Tradition Tuesday is an opportunity for you to learn about the diverse cultures that make Anchorage unique. Beyond creating an enjoyable place for our community, we see Tradition Tuesday as a very positive way to celebrate the diverse spirit of Anchorage and our appreciation for everyone who has given so much to our city.
