As the Village of Mount Prospect continues to monitor local coronavirus data trends and respond to mandates in recent State of Illinois Executive Orders, the Village finds it is in the best interest of the public to cancel the 2020 Celebration of Cultures. We look forward to resuming the Celebration of Cultures in 2021.

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Mount Prospect Celebrations of Cultures event. The Mayor and the Village Board have long recognized the diverse population that makes up the Village. As a result, the Mount Prospect Celebration of Cultures has been planned as commemoration to honor the many diverse populations that live side by side in the Village.
Parking in the RecPlex parking lot is limited. Attendees are encouraged to park in the north end of the Kohls parking lot at 1500 Elmhurst Road, (Elmhurst Rd and Dempster Street.)
Crafts from Ten Thousand Villages
Ten Thousand Villages is a free trade craft outlet. From communities throughout the developing world, every inspired design is crafted with love using local materials (usually natural or recycled) and time-honored skills by makers they have known and worked with for years.
Every purchase improves the lives of makers by supporting their craft and providing a fair, stable income.
Small plates will be available for the price of $3, so visitors can try several different dishes.
