Celebrating Diversity at Morton Arboretum Asia Festival

LISLE, Ill. – The Morton Arboretum Not only does it have a diverse collection of trees, but it also celebrates diverse cultures through the Destination Asia Festival.

Eight Asian countries were represented at Morton Arboretum on Saturday. Destination Asia began in 2014 as an opportunity to learn about the culture, traditions and history of Asia.

Like the Tyco, a Japanese drum that’s over 2,000 years old, Saturday’s performance had a modern interpretation.

“I think it’s really great to appreciate the different cultures here today and in our own neighborhoods,” said Jenelle Hardtke, manager of special events.
