Celebration-of-Cultures-2018-Final-2261The 2nd Annual Mount Prospect Celebration of Cultures will take place on Saturday, September 14, 2019 from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Kopp Park, located just behind RecPlex, 420 Dempster Street. 

Mayor Arlene Juracek and the members of the Village Board have long recognized the diverse population that makes up the Village. Celebrating our community’s diversity has been identified as high priority in the Village’s Strategic Plan. As a result, the Mount Prospect Celebration of Cultures event was created as commemoration to honor the many diverse populations that live side by side in the Village.

The Mount Prospect Celebration of Cultures is a partnership between the Village of Mount Prospect, the Mt. Prospect Park District and the Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce. The event will feature entertainment, cultural booths, a craft fair and food from around the world. Community partners/agencies will also be present with booths and information.

The day will kick off with an opening ceremonies, which will begin with a parade of cultures and culminate with a multi-stranded ribbon being tied together as a symbol of unity. There will be a day-long lineup of cultural entertainment featuring bands, singers, dancing groups and sports demos.
