The Armenian Cultural Organization of Minnesota (ACOM) preserves and promotes Armenian culture, language, history and heritage in Minnesota and the upper Midwest. Founded in 1980 and headquartered in St. Paul, ACOM is the oldest and largest Armenian organization in the state.

ACOM welcomes everyone, regardless of ethnic, religious or political affiliation, who takes an interest in Armenia and Armenians. Our members include first generation through fourth generation Minnesota Armenians, their families, and non-Armenian friends of the community.

Help Support Us!

Whether your interest is genealogy or history, fine arts or folk crafts, travel or current affairs—even if you don’t speak a word of Armenian—you’ll find a warm welcome at ACOM social gatherings and cultural events.
