A popular booth at the festival was an educational one hosted by the Islamic Society of North America. Festival-goers could pick up free English copies of the Koran, try on a hijab or talk to practicing Muslims about their faith.
Booth coordinator Albert Tampi said the society has hosted a booth for more than 10 years, and it's always well attended. He said interest seemed particularly high this year.
"There's so many misconceptions about Islam," Tampi said. "People are curious."
