On Saturday, February 11, 2023, the region will come together celebrate the diverse array of cultures found here, and to invite community members to experience the global music, dance, languages, and foods found locally along with a cash bar with signature international drinks. We invite you to support these efforts to draw attention to our vibrant and dynamic society of talented people that make Central Illinois such a great place to live, work and grow.

There will be booths featuring the dynamic elements of numerous cultures, including educational materials on traditional attire, holidays, customs, and fun facts about each culture and group. In addition, there will be musical and dance performances that weave through the event space, offering participants the opportunity to immerse themselves briefly in the global cultures of Central Illinois.

The highlights of the day include performances by the Peoria Ballet Company and the Central Illinois Ballet Company. These beautiful performances will offer the artistic expression of the diverse cultures of Central Illinois through dance, music and costuming. Their performances will be joined by the Peoria International Choir and PJ Dance Academy, and more performances are being added weekly.
