2022 Karibu Fashion Show

The Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (CVOEO) invites you to the in-person return of the acclaimed international fashion show, Karibu!

Karibu, which means “welcome” in Swahili, is an energetic, community-centered event that celebrates the cultural diversity of the Burlington area and is an occasion to showcase the talents of diverse makers and models.

All funds raised directly support the CVOEO Asylum Seekers Assistance Program, which provides asylees with emergency funds to purchase essential items, including personal hygiene supplies, diapers, food, and medicine. All attendees are encouraged to make a donation of $10-50 per ticket.

This year’s event will also feature the New Hope Award Presentation Ceremony. This award is sponsored by the Crystal family and recognizes New Americans making a difference in our community.

This event will be held on 9/24 starting at 4:30 pm at the Fleming Museum. Tickets are available here.
