The Stillwater Sister Cities Program exists to build and strengthen international cooperation, to promote cultural understanding and peace, and to develop long-term community partnerships.
Stillwater’s award-winning program began in 1985 and is an active part of the municipal government of the City of Stillwater. With a strong commitment to our sister city, Kameoka, Kyoto, Japan, we work to develop a wide range of cultural, educational and exchange programs that benefit the both communities.
Throughout the year, we host public events highlighting international culture, cuisine, art, entertainment, business and education. Activities held at many locations throughout Stillwater are designed to promote international friendships and goodwill in a fun and educational atmosphere. We are eager to assist anyone welcoming international students and visitors to our community.
The public is invited to attend Stillwater Sister Cities Council meetings. Meetings are held the fourth Thursday of each month at 5 p.m. in the Kameoka Room in the City of Stillwater Community Center, 315 W. 8th Ave.
