A program of the International Institute of Wisconsin (IIW), Holiday Folk Fair International celebrates the cultural heritage of the people living in southeastern Wisconsin. The 2019 theme, “Celebrate the Culture of Language – Indigenous and Heritage,” will allow Fair-goers the opportunity to explore how the language of those from around the world shape how they communicate and what they share with the next generation. Joining us to share the details on this year's event is Gina Jorgensen, member of the Tradizione Vivente (Italian) group participating in Folk Fair and 2019 Folk Fair Honorary Chairperson.
The 2019 Holiday Folk Fair International is happening this weekend -- Friday, November 22 through Sunday, November 24 at the State Fair Park Exposition Center. For more information and discounted advance tickets, visit FolkFair.org or call (414) 225-6225.
