The Multicultural Festival

Tempting aromas beckon as you collect your complimentary passport and immerse yourself in an atmosphere rich with taste, sound, texture, and color. Everyone comes for the food and stays for the entertainment. Rightly so. In addition to more than 10 live acts, well-known media personalities present Interactive International Trivia in TV-game-show style. Prize packages are both appetizing and useful (think pizza to tire alignments). Parade float winners and Grand Prize Chicago Family Getaway winners are announced during the course of the afternoon. There’s no specific time, so stick around, savor the flavors, and immerse yourself in faraway worlds close to home.
