Previously known as Unisono, Pilsen Fest will bring together local residents and the general public to celebrate the cultural talent and diversity that exists in the thriving Pilsen neighborhood. Pilsen has been a long-time destination to connect with Mexican roots and culture that cannot be found elsewhere in the city. This festival aims to empower its residents and festivalgoers by supporting and promoting the talent that exists in the blossoming Pilsen neighborhood.
Held at 18th St. and Blue Island, the two-day festival will feature food and craft vendors, culinary diversity, local breweries, mixologists, a children’s area, social conscience panels and visual arts exhibits. Participation of volunteers and local talent is vital to the grass-roots efforts of this community. The celebration of this cultural renaissance is an experience not to be missed. Pilsen Fest is a wonderful event, both fostering and furthering cultural literacy within the diverse Latino/Mexican community of the Pilsen neighborhood.
