Midwestern Roots is back and better than ever just for you.

Join us for three days of learning, in-person networking, and fun around discovering and sharing about the past. Exploring how immigration and migration has impacted the story of the Midwest, we’ll dive into how food, music, fine art, and clothing can be pathways to the movements of people across time. With different session formats and lengths, storytellers with different backgrounds and experiences, an invigorated vendor hall, and a thoughtful thematic menu – we promise you this is a conference you do not want to miss.
