Ethnic Festival



and Parade



Sunday, August 26, Noon—6:00pm

7th Street and 4th Ave.


Celebrating nearly 50 global cultures in Rockford, the 4th annual Midtown Ethnic Parade & Festival is not to be missed! It’s a big party featuring the many diverse cultures in our city, including a parade of colors & customs – dancing dragons, bagpipes, ethnic dance troupes, music and more – at 501 7th St. Feast on delicious international cuisine, relax in the beer garden, and enjoy the entertaining performances!

The Jewish Federation is one of the core group organizers for this community wide event. People who participated last year had a great time. We were filled with pride as we walked in the parade with our complimentary Rockford Jewish Community tshirts. It was nice to have the Jewish community represented. This year the festival and parade will be bigger with more ethnic groups participating. Participating in the parade and festival is a wonderful way for us to connect with other ethnic groups in Rockford. Please walk in the parade with us. We need you and it is lots of fun!!
