About The Skokie Festival of Cultures
The event, held at Skokie’s 19-acre Oakton Park, has grown over 25 years from 14 cultures with 1,000 attendees, to more than three dozen cultures and 30,000 visitors, annually. Over two days in May, visitors enjoy ethnic folk music and dance on two stages, arts and crafts, international children's games, food, a beer tasting, a merchandise bazaar, cultural booths, a mini train ride around the park, and the festival’s iconic flag display. The festival has been honored with both state and national art event programming awards.
The first Skokie Festival of Cultures was initiated and planned in 1990 by a newly-formed Skokie ethnic diversity committee, as well as the Skokie Human Relations Commission, Skokie Park District, Rotary Club of Skokie, Village of Skokie and the Skokie Public Library.
