Follow-up from The World Food and Music Festival

Thank you to all who attended the Des Moines World Food and Music Festival and came to visit the Des Moines European Heritage Association booth. The festival was filled with food, friends, and families, and provided DMEHA and Christkindlmarket a way to get more of the public aware of our upcoming events and activities.


We had several wonderful volunteers manning the booth and passing out our informational sheets for CDM and DMEHA. Volunteers helped children make Christmas ornaments as our gift to them and we received feedback and talked to interested parties in either coming to the festival or getting our monthly newsletter. Thank you once again to everyone who attended and helped make it such a success.


Des Moines European Heritage Association connects Iowans with European traditions, language education and cultural experiences; and it provides resources and tools to other cultural heritage organizations.

Hello, my name is Rebecca Banger and I am a second year student at Drake University. I am currently studying Advertising and Public Relations with emphasis in design. I will be a graduate of Drake’s class of 2018 and hope to work in PR in Des Moines. I am from Farmington, Missouri and am actively involved on my campus and around Des Moines as well. I decided to get involved with the Des Moines European Heritage Association and Christkindlmarket Des Moines planning as I am very interested in the culture of Des Moines and the European influence on the city of Des Moines. It is my dream to experience as much culture as I can and everything the world has to offer. I plan on accomplishing this goal by learning about European culture and hopefully traveling in the future.
