Chattanooga, like the rest of the country, is a melting pot bringing together many different cultures. U.S. Census Bureau estimates show that in Chattanooga, 5 percent of the population is foreign-born, accounting for about 9,500 people.

Some of those cultures were on display at the 17th annual CultureFest held at the Chattanooga Market.
