New in 2021, the PeopleFest! Committee developed a guide to assist residents in exploring the people of Eden Prairie's past and present through food and history. Though a refreshed version will be ready for our 2022 celebration, you can continue to explore the richness of the Eden Prairie community right now — on your own schedule! Download the PeopleFest! Guide to Culture, History & Cuisine and get started! Go on a history hunt or experience a taste of cultural traditions by creating your own ethnic food tour.
Visit this site for detailed information about the featured local restaurants and historical sites included in the guide.
Our community-wide celebration is presented in collaboration by the City of Eden Prairie, Eden Prairie Schools Community Education, Eden Prairie Community Foundation, Interfaith Circle, Eden Prairie Historical Society, Academy for Young Leaders, Eden Prairie Human Rights and Diversity Commission, Eden Prairie Chinese Association, India Association of MN, Eden Prairie TreeHouse and others. PeopleFest! is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
