Chicago Festival in the Bulgaria’s Capital Sofia, June 20-26, 2011

May 05, 2011

The First Chicago Festival, co-organized by the Friends of Chicago Foundation, Sofia City Hall and the Embassy of the United States, will be held in Sofia from Monday, June 20, 2011 to Sunday, June 26, 2011. 


Concerts, exhibitions, lectures about Chicago culture and architecture, as well as a Happening in the Borissov Park under the motto “I Love Chicago” are the events that will bring Chicago closer to Sofia and its citizens. Held just before the 4th of July, this Festival, initiated by a Bulgarian non-governmental organization, will use people-to-people diplomacy to promote Bulgarian-American friendship and cooperation and to provide public support for establishing a sister cities relationship between Bulgaria’s capital Sofia and Chicago.

At a press conference on May 4, 2011 at the National Palace of Culture in Sofia, information on the upcoming Chicago Festival was provided to Bulgarian journalists and foreign diplomats. The 2011 Chicago Festival makes part of the Sixteen Salon des Arts in the Bulgarian capital.
