Now you don’t have to go too far as Navy Pier is bringing eight different countries over two months to the heart of Chicago! Sounds great, right? Navy Pier is hosting their Neighborhoods of the World series February 26 to April 15, beginning with Amazing India and ending with Germania on the Pier.
The Neighborhoods of the World series at Navy Pier is an annual tradition! Last year, I learned so much about different cultures that I was unaware of. The best part? Learning hands on! From taking in live music, tasting authentic regional cuisine and taking in the sights, it’s the ultimate immersion-learning experience! Could it really get better than that?
This year’s lineup includes: Amazing India, A Greek Journey in the Windy City, Celebrate Lithuanian Independence, Celebrate Mexico, Bell’Italia, Philippine Fest Chicago, Africa in Chicago and Germania on the Pier! Whoa! That’s an impressive roster! To highlight these various cultures, Navy Pier will offering dancing, live music, authentic food, costumes, and more.
I am always excited for this time of the year! And you should be, too. What are you waiting for? There are myriad countries just waiting for you to explore. Neighborhoods of the World takes place every Sunday from February 26through April 8 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Hope to see you there!
