Cultures in Cleveland

Cleveland is such a tremendous melting pot of almost every ethnic background. It is this mingling of traditions and lifestyles that help give us the special flavor we have. Always proud of our American heritage, it is interesting and often exciting to also celebrate our ethnic background and roots.

Different nationalities commemorate traditions through festivals, social clubs, churches and various associations. They are the perfect place to learn about our heritage and the customs of our ancestors. This country is only 225 years old. With the exception of Native Americans, all of our relatives, however distant, came from some other country.
