ROGERS PARK — A "cultural explosion" is set to hit Clark Street Saturday as fest-goers, vendors and performers from around the world converge during the 8th Annual Celebrate Clark Street Festival.

The two-day summer festival begins 11 a.m. Saturday on Clark Street between Morse and Estes avenues.

Artists from countries like Chad, Zambia and Colombia will grace two stages.

H'sao, a Chadian group that draws from gospel and traditional African music, hits the stage 5 p.m. Saturday.

On Sunday, Boogat takes the stage at 8 p.m. to close out the fest. The French Canadian raps in Spanish and bridges a "Latin groove with urban and electronic music," according to his bio.

The fest, billed "Rogers Park's cultural explosion," will also feature 16 food vendors, offering ethnic food such as traditional Mexican and Senegalese.

The Heartland Cafe, Glenwood Bar and Side Car Bar will be serving beer.

The festival attracts 25,000 people annually.


Saturday: 1-11 p.m.

Sunday: 1-10 p.m.
