Dear TACA Members, Chicago Turkish Festival Supporters, and the Turkish Community,
For the last 14 years we have been organizing the Chicago Turkish Festival with great help from the Turkish Community. It has become a signature event with positive reviews every year. Many of you had some part during the festival for the last fourteen years.
This year’s event was going to take place in September. As you may know our festival has always been funded mostly by the Turkish Government. Unfortunately funding that we should have received many months ago from the Turkish Government has not become available to this date. Much to our regret, we decided to cancel our Turkish Festival this year.
Even though we are saddened, festival committee is already looking forward to plan our 15th Festival next year.
On behalf of TACA and the Festival Organization Committee I would like to thank you for all your support and understanding.
