Wheeling Park District Annual International Fest 2022

On Sunday, Aug. 14, the Wheeling Park District hosted International Festival 2022 at Heritage Park Performance Pavilion. Hundreds of families and friends gathered to celebrate the diversity of our community with a variety of cultural entertainment from 15 different performers from the Chicago area featuring music, dance, songs, and costumes from all over the world.

Attendees had the opportunity to visit over 20 booths hosted by community organizations who provided information about their respective services/programs and engaged attendees with hands-on learning opportunities about the many nationalities present in our community. Those in attendance were also treated to delicious and authentic food provided by local favorites Mario’s Cart, Flyin Hawaiian, El Famous Burrito, Billy Bricks, and Jester’s Food Truck.

This event was made possible thanks in part to the support of Inland Bank, Rise N Dine, PlayGround Games, Power Home Remodeling, Alianza Hispana, Cinergy Entertainment, and Veronica Roman from State Farm.
