Neighborhoods of the World

comed-logoSundays, February 8 – March 29
Noon – 3 p.m.
Crystal Gardens

Navy Pier is proud to celebrate the rich tapestry of Chicago’s diverse communities at Neighborhoods of the World, an annual cultural tribute, presented in collaboration with community arts organizations, consulates and museums. Over the course of eight weeks, celebrate the many cultures of our world-class city by enjoying lively folk music, traditional dance, cuisine and crafts from various ethnic Chicago communities. Come travel the world without ever leaving your backyard! This event is free and open to the public. Schedule may be subject to change.

Look for artist and Chicago area native Pete Nawara at Neighborhoods of the World who will be capturing photographs of visitors like you to Navy Pier. With visitor permission, these photos will become potential subjects hand-painted into "Pier People," a mural located just inside the new food experience that is expected to be completed in April.
