Unieros Guide to Holidays in Chicago's Ethnic Neighborhoods

Unieros Holiday Guide to Ethnic Chicago

It’s beginning to look a lot like... ethnic holidays in Chicago. Each holiday season the city sparkles with a host of traditional ethnic holiday events that give Chicagoans a taste of the traditional holiday celebrations from cultures around the world.

This year's ethnic festivities start as early as November with Christkindlmarket, an annual German American festival featuring holiday market in the heart of downtown Chicago.

The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago presents "Christmas Traditions Around the World" an exhibit of music and performances of holiday traditions celebrated across the globe. The Christmast Traditions Around the World Exhibit runs November 13, 2014 -January 1, 2015.

On the city's northside, Andersonville will host Julmarknad on December 6 and 7 at the Swedish American Museum. Julmarknad is a traditional Swedish handicrafts festival with traditional Swedish food.

Andersonville businesses also join the festivities by offering free music, discounts on merchandise and even a cocktail party. Later on December 13, Andersonville will celebrate Santa Lucia Festival of Lights (St. Lucia).

Holidays would not be complete without carols. Enjoy every Friday until December 21 from 6pm-6:50pm enjoy free caroling at Cloud Gate in Millennium Park.
