Chicago families can explore global cultures at first-ever Global Kids WorldFest on October 21

by Aimee Thompson @ Raising World Citizens Recent Posts

Living in a diverse city like Chicago, it often feels like you can explore different cultures just from driving from neighborhood to neighborhood across the city. But, there are those special moments when cultures converge in one place, creating a diverse world cultural microcosm where you can seemingly span the globe just by walking from table to table, from person to person and from culture to culture. And, that to me is the allure of WorldChicago’s Global Kids WorldFest, which take place for the first time at Sullivan High School (6631 N. Bosworth Ave.) in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood on Saturday, October 21. Taking place from 10 am – 3 pm, the one-day festival is aimed at helping Chicago families explore global cultures through food, games and crafts. Global Kids WorldFest will feature food trucks, carnival games, arts and crafts, and a kids international village. Event entry is free and activity tickets cost 25 cents. Early bird tickets are available online, and offer you the opportunity to purchase 100 activity tickets for $20. Proceeds from Global Kids WorldFest will benefit WorldChicago’s local and global programs to support citizen diplomacy by engaging the Chicago community and the world. WorldChicago is a nonprofit dedicated to promoting citizen diplomacy by empowering youth to be service-minded global citizens. It choose a special home for the first-ever Global Kids WorldFest - Sullivan High School accepted nearly 100 refugees during the 2016-2017 school year, establishing it as school committed to international diversity. With an immigrant population close to 300, that student group now makes up 45 percent of Sullivan High School’s total student population – and its student body represents over 38 countries and speaks more than 35 languages. In order to establish a mutual understanding of the opportunities and challenges of English-language learning, Sullivan High School students met with delegates from WorldChicago’s Iraqi Youth Leadership Exchange Program over the summer. And, now they’re helping to further Chicago family awareness and appreciation of global cultures through Global Kids WorldFest. So, on October 21, instead of driving through Chicago’s neighborhoods and stopping at different places in order to appreciate global cultures, I plan to make one stop at Global Kids WorldFest – and travel around the world right from there.
