World Food Prize Laureate Award Ceremony

October 13, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

In 2006, the World Food Prize initially brought Walter and Wagner from Brazil to the U.S. to perform. Now, 10yrs later, the Twins return to perform at the event that started it all. 

THE WORLD FOOD PRIZE LAUREATE AWARD CEREMONY. This event is held in the magnificent Iowa State Capitol building in Des Moines, Iowa. The ceremony rivals that of the Nobel Prize, drawing over 800 international guests. Each year, world-class performers take the stage to honor the World Food Prize Laureate, and the event is televised and webcast live. Past performers have included Ray Charles, John Denver, Chachi Tadesse, Kathak Gunjan, the Tokyo String Quartet, and Achinoam Nini (Noa). Following the Ceremony, the celebration continues at the Laureate Award Dinner, held in the Capitol rotunda. Learn more about past events here.
