The Macedonian-American Cultural and Educational (MACE) Center was established in 2009 to celebrate the rich heritage and traditions of Macedonian culture, as well as to embrace the contemporary directions it has now taken. The Center encourages an appreciation of the Macedonian language, arts, history, cuisine, and commerce through educational programs, exhibits, and events.

We strive to build a sense of community among Macedonian-Americans living in and around metropolitan Chicago.

The MACE Center focuses on three main pillars:

  • Culture

    Chronicle and describe the uniqueness of the Macedonian-American cultural experience.

  • Education

    Establish and maintain a permanent center that could include a library, museum, and concert hall.

  • Identity

    Strive to discover innovative programs and methods of promoting Macedonian culture.
