    Viva Chile in Philadelphia!

    The City of Brotherly Love will open its arms to embrace Chilean culture in Fall 2008 as Philadelphia celebrates the sights, sounds and flavors of Chile. Chile and Philadelphia have a long history in trade, as Philadelphia is the main port for Chilean imports into the United States, especially Chilean fruit. In celebration of Philadelphia’s appreciation for all things Chile and the 20th anniversary of the Chilean and American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Philadelphia (CACC), the Embassy of Chile in the United States, the Consulate of Chile in Philadelphia, ProChile — the Trade Commission of Chile — and the CACC invite you to enjoy performances of Chilean musicians, an exhibition of Chilean Art from the 1960s, a celebration of Chile’s gastronomy, tastings of Chilean wine, a film festival, seminars, talks and much more.
