GlobaLou Americana's Celebration of Diversity and Community Iroquois Amphitheater Free  |  11 a.m.-8 p.m. In Jefferson County, almost 7 percent of the population, or about 52,000 people, are immigrants. GlobaLou gives you a chance to meet some of these neighbors and celebrate the diversity that their many cultural backgrounds bring to our community. The celebration will feature a buy-local marketplace, an international food court with food from Africa, Asia and Central America and live music provided by Quiet Hollers, Appalatin, Abraham Mwinda, Cosa Seria and The Afrophysicists.


Sister Bingo! Benefiting Transwomen National Play Louisville $5  |  7:30-9:30 p.m. What better way to play bingo than with The Derby City Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a “modern order of 21st century nuns dedicated to community service, fundraising, outreach, advocacy and safe sex education.” This Sunday, the sisters will host a night of bingo benefiting Transwomen National, a trans-centric, group based portal that exists solely for the empowerment and support of all transgender women. Bring a nonperishable food item or personal-care item for House of Ruth to receive six extra bingo cards.

Refugee Rally Bowl-a-thon Sports & Social Club $10-$20  |  3-9 p.m. Cheer on your favorite bartenders as they compete in this bowling tournament to raise funds for the Kentucky Refugee Ministries. While you can’t participate in the tournament itself, attendees can bid on silent auction items, purchase 50/50 tickets and raffle tickets to win schwag or just party it up with the local bartenders and take fabulous selfies in the photo booth.
