Події в Чикаго

August 2019

We recommend the best events, festivals, and fun things to do in Chicago, Illinois.

Найкраще в чиказьких фестивалях – це їх відвідувати! Телевізор, комп’ютер та соціальні мережі, звичайно, добре, проте враження від строкатого натовпу, учасників, музикантів, творів мистецтва й сувенірів завжди краще! У кожному фестивалі Міста Вітрів ти можеш знайти родзинку, а іноді “родзинка” сама знаходить тебе.

Головне, щоб було цікаво, весело і пиво не було теплим.

УКРАЇНСЬКІ ФЕСТИВАЛІ ДІАСПОРИ

Вони найважливіші,  тому що наповнюють нас “чуттям єдиної родини”, допомагають поринути у рідну культуру; насолодитися виступами зірок з України та місцевих талановитих виконавців; зустрітися з друзями, вдягнути вишиванки і “дати лиха закаблукам”, а також посмакувати наші улюблені українські страви.
