The Rogers Park event, curated by Sound Culture Center for Global Arts, has grown from a community celebration into one of Chicago’s most renowned and unique street festivals, attracting over 30,000 people annually. The festival has become a mecca for concert and festival goers and Chicago’s hippest globalistas. It highlights folkloric music and dance from around the world, and cutting edge international touring bands redefining the world music genre on two stages.
This year the festival welcomes vendors from the Glenwood Sunday Market. Circus acts will be performing throughout the festival area, and family activities will include Zumba, face painting, arts & crafts and much more.
