For nearly 20 years The International Festival of Life was located in Washington Park in Chicago’s Hyde Park community, where it drew thousands of Chicagoans and national and international visitors to the annual four day celebration of African and Caribbean culture. In 2013, the festival is moving from It’s original south side location to Union Park in the West loop. “We are making the move due to popular demand,” said Martin’s International Culture president, Ephraim Martin, producers of the event. “It also offers an accessible location, especially for tourists, excellent public transportation, parking and convenience for the vendors and exhibitors.”
The festival attracts visitors, vendors, media and others from various parts of the country and overseas to celebrate the music, food, arts and crafts and culture of people from various parts of the globe.” In its new location at 1501 West Randolph Street, the festival will run from Thursday through Sunday, July 4th through July 7, 2013 from 12:00 p.m. to 10:00 pm daily.
Over the last 20 years, the International Festival of Life has grown from a small community family festival to an internationally recognized institution that reaches over 5 million people annually.
