The goal of the Turkic Cultural Day, sponsored by The Turkish Cultural Center of Maine and Council of Turkic American Association, is to build bridges of understanding among people from all walks of life and to foster friendship, peace and tolerance. In addition to giving Maine’s elected officials the opportunity to meet Turkish/Turkic community members and to gain greater understanding of the Turkish people and their culture, the Turkish Cultural Center of Maine aims to foster collaboration beneficial to Maine’s growing Turkish/Turkic population and to enhance the strong alliance between the United States and Turkiye.
