Laramie International Flavor Festival: Celebrating Culture through Flavor

Laramie Main Street Alliance (LMSA) is pleased to announce the Inaugural International Flavor Festival at participating restaurants throughout downtown Laramie from March 28th – April 3rd.

Through collaborations, international flavors. and conversations, Laramie International Flavor Festival celebrates diverse international residents and influences. 

In this festival, 20 participating downtown restaurants will infuse a menu item with flavors inspired by more than 80 international community members and students from over 40 nations. These specials will appear on their menus throughout the week.

Laramie Main Street Alliance partnered with University of Wyoming International Students and Scholars to encourage the participation of the international community, who identified dishes and ingredients associated with their cultures. Participating restaurants were then paired with ambassadors’ responses to create menu items inspired by their flavors. 

Restaurants are embracing the opportunity to expand their palette; some are adding international flavors to existing dishes, several will be debuting traditional dishes, and many will debut entirely new and creative menu items.  

“This event has so much potential to foster human connections and draw new communities to Downtown Laramie to celebrate our diverse international residents and influences,” says Flavor Festival Co-Chair Ali Grossman. “The whole experience has been delicious – if you want to get to know your neighbors, ask about their foods and traditions.”
