Already the site of new public artwork, the Chicago Riverwalk will “go global” later this week as part of a six-week-long event to celebrate the culture and cuisine of the Windy City’s 28 international sister cities. Dubbed “Unifest on the River: One Globe, Many Cultures,” the downtown event is scheduled to take place every Thursday afternoon between 4:30 and 8:30 PM starting July 13th. It runs through August 17th.
“With the Riverwalk’s surrounding architecture and bridges as a backdrop, Unifest celebrates what makes Chicago a world class city—a global mix of cultures and communities coming together to enjoy everything the city has to offer,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement. The extended six-week menu as well as pricing information is available on Unifest’s official website.
