Visit Neighborhoods of the World at Navy Pier in Chicago

Want to experience a different part of the world every week, for free? Beginning this Sunday, Chicago’s Navy Pier will be host to various countries (and a continent) where Chicagoland families and visitors can celebrate different cultures through an afternoon of music, dance, colorful costumes, authentic cuisine and local folk artists.

The weekly performance series begins with India and the journey continues to include Greece, Lithuania, Mexico, Italy, the Philippines, Africa and ends with a trip to Germany.

It all takes place in Navy Pier’s gorgeous Crystal Gardens each Sunday from February 26 through April 15, 2012. The events take place from noon to 5:00 p.m. and are free. To learn more, visit Navy Pier’s website.

I’m excited to take the kids – I think they’ll enjoy taking a trip downtown while learning more about different countries (and a continent) and getting a taste of culture in a beautiful setting. Care to join us? Let me know and we can make it a date!

Here is the line up in greater detail:

  • February 26: Amazing India
    Presented in partnership with the Indo-American Heritage Museum and the Consulate General of India
  • March 4: A Greek Journey in the Windy City
