Musical guests include The "Singing Slovenes," Slovenia-based Gasper Krek, the Sam Miletich Tamburica Ensemble, and more.

"it (Ethnic Days) gives us the opportunity to provide, not just our local residents but other people coming out of town. We have people form the Twin Cities, the Iron Range the chance to experience our ethnic culture, heritage, our music, and the foods," Frank Bucar with the "Singing Slovenes" says.

It's free to attend, but for $10, people can experience an array of slovenian delicacies including ?Evapcici (a type of sausage dish without the casing), Koshar's Slovenian Sausage from Gilbert, Minnesota, Potica (Slovenian nut roll), and more.

The Gary New Duluth Recreational Pavilion provides a large area for a number of activities to take place during the event.

"This year we're going for a broader group of people that we're attracting to this," Fran Morris with the Gary New Duluth Development Alliance says. "We've got a lot for the kids. We're going to have a bounce house set up, face-painting..."

Folks from the Duluth Children's Museum and YMCA will also be in attendance putting on fun activities for the kids.

Ethnic Days runs from noon to 5 p.m.
