Festival Map

Since its inception in 1991, the Skokie Festival of Cultures has become one of the premier ethnic festivals in Illinois, attracting more than 400,000 visitors and dozens of cultures, all representing Skokie's tremendous diversity.

Please join us for this free 'Tour of the World,' where you and your friends and family will enjoy two days of ethnic folk music and dance, a wide range of food, unique arts and crafts, international children's games and beer tasting, a merchandise bazaar, and dozens of cultural booths and displays.

The Skokie Festival of Cultures is a winner of state and national art event programming awards and is supported by the Illinois Arts Council — as well as by local public agencies, service groups and corporate sponsors. Interested in your culture taking part? Email us about it here!
