Gardens & Street Art: October Order of Events 2021

October is the perfect time to visit Chicago! It is a temperate climate with beautiful foliage. Often, even the most iconic of attractions are a bit less crowded. It is recommended to come well prepared as the weather can switch on a dime. Every day could be a new season. Sometimes, a fall morning, a summer afternoon, and a wintery evening allows all of them in just a day! It is the perfect time to gather outside or see outdoor exhibits. There are also plenty of fun events in the area! From festivals and architecture cruises to gardens and street art, take a look at what is happening in Chicago this October!

Spend Some Time Outdoors

Because of the generally gorgeous weather, it can be a wonderful time to stroll around Chicago. Classics like Millennium Park and the Chicago Riverwalk will be less packed and great places to see the autumn colors. Places like the Morton Arboretum, which boasts 4,000 different types of trees, or the Chicago Botanical Garden with its 385 acres of immaculately landscaped parks, are amazing places to take in the fall splendor. At the time of writing, the Arboretum requires visitors to reserve their spot ahead of time on their website.

If you do find yourself wandering the streets enjoying yourself and the views, keep your eyes open for Chicago’s famous street murals.

And check out the Banksy Exhibit running through October. It is the largest touring collection of Banksy’s works in the world.

Explore Local Architecture

The Banksy Exhibit is just a couple blocks from the Chicago Architectural Museum. Besides being a great place to visit on its own, for two days (October 16-17), the museum allows the public access to a great deal of architecturally significant buildings and spaces that are generally closed off from the public.

If architecture is your thing, you can follow up with a trip to the museum via the Chicago Architecture River Cruise. These cruises are narrated by the architecture center’s own guides and are open as long as the river isn’t frozen. These cruises as a must as there is no better way to get such a widespread glimpse of the city. Additionally, they are often much more pleasant in October due to smaller crowds and pleasant temps.

On top of those listed above, there are a great many other events happening as well.

Other Events this October: 

  • Looking to celebrate? Join two of the biggest and longest running Pride events in the nation in the home of the first recognized LGBTQ community at Chicago Pride Fest and Parade (October 1-3, 2021).

  • Celebrating is generally better with some imbibements. Chicago Wine Fest (October 2, 2021) features night and day servings of rare varietals and stellar musicians to keep the party going.

 

Whether it’s gardens & street art, music festivals & architecture, or beer & wine — for whichever part of October you find yourself in Chicago, The Windy City always has something to catch your sail.

Music Festivals & Architecture: Check Out Chicago this September!

As the weather starts to cool down, new events are coming to the Chicago area! Live music festivals in local parks, house music showcases, and architecture exhibits allow for plenty of ways to find fun in the city. As such, many of these events are taking place in safe, considerate spaces that have your health in mind. Many of them are even outside! As Fall rolls in, take a look at some of the awesome upcoming events in the area.

Enjoy Some Music

first, from August 19th – September 19th, Chicago In Tune is bringing music all around the Chicago area for the 2021 Year of Chicago Music. As part of this event, DCASE is presenting new and revolutionized programs in Millennium Park. There are four planned evenings from 5:30 to 8:30pm at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. They are themed around honoring music that has its roots in Chicago. These dates are:

  • 9/03/2021 – Gospel
  • 9/04/2021 – Jazz
  • 9/11/2021 – House
  • 9/18/2021 – Blues

Looking for more Jazz beyond the DCASE programs? Similarly to last year, take a look at the Hyde Park Jazz Festival! From Sept. 25-26, enjoy artists such as Corey Wilkes’ Improvised Soul Projekt featuring Megan McNeal & Kahil El Zabar, John Wojciechowski Quartet featuring Xavier Davis, Tomeka Reid & Regina Carter, and Isaiah Collier’s 3-6 Project featuring JD Allen. Visit the Hyde Park Jazz Festival website to see more information as it is announced! 

Are you maybe more of a House fan? House City is a 10-part event series that has been running throughout the summer celebrating the neighborhoods that helped create the House music genre more than 35 years ago. In September, they have two events:

  • 9/12/2021 – South Shore, 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm – DJs Torin Edmond, Rae Chardonnay, and DK Kobe One Kenobi
  • 9/19/2021 – Bronzeville, 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm – DJs Mike Dunn, Daryll Mellowman, and JStar

Learn about Local Architects

Live music festivals may not be your thing, but maybe try a day in Chicago’s architecture! In 2021, the famous Chicago architect and style icon Helmut Jahn passed away. He collected almost every architectural award during his career and challenged modernist orthodoxy. Some of his buildings that you may be familiar with include the Michigan City Public Library, the James R. Thompson Center, and the Sony Center in Berlin. The Chicago Architecture Center is holding an exhibit with photography, models, and sketches to help us learn more about this innovator’s creative and engineering processes. From the United Terminal at O’Hare to the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library, Helmut Jahn’s work is provocative and adventurous. 

Overall, music festivals and architecture are not hard to find in Chicago. However, if they both are not interesting to you, then stay tuned for more events! Meanwhile, please continue to stay safe while stepping out! To stay updated on the latest and most accurate information related to COVID-19, please refer to https://www.cdc.gov/

August Arts & Music: Frida to Latin Pop

August brings the end of events like the El Jolgorio de Salsa y Más and Grant Park Music Festival. However, it also signals the beginning of many new events! In the arts and music industries, events are popping up around the city. Most events still have safety precautions in place. Therefore, you can feel safe and comfortable while listening to live music or going to a local market. We have gathered our highly anticipated events for August so that you can find the perfect event for the end of the Summer. From Frida to Latin Pop, look below for our suggestions for the month!

Visit the Chinatown Summer Fair

Start off the month by visiting the Chinatown Summer Fair either July 31st or August 1st. This highly anticipated fair includes a traditional lion dance procession, Asian performances, and kung fu demonstrations. Additionally, it hosts a children’s area and vendors from Chinatown’s restaurants to local arts merchandise. This fair showcases a stunning variety of Asian cultures and traditions. Enjoy the rich food, music, and artistry from Chicago’s Chinatown and learn a little bit more about this historical neighborhood.

View an Art Show

August brings a handful of new art shows to the area. If you are okay with heading out to the suburbs, the MAC (McAninch Arts Center) is featuring 26 original pieces of Frida Kahlo along with an immersive exhibit in Frida Kahlo: Timeless. The exhibit includes a multimedia timeline with reproductions of Kahlo’s clothing and over 100 photos from their life. Additionally, it hosts a children’s area and a Frida Kahlo-inspired garden by Ball Horticultural. You can get untimed tickets for $40 and timed tickets for $23.

Check out the Art Institute

If you are looking for something closer to home, consider the new installation at the Art Institute. During the first half of the month, the Art Institute of Chicago is showing The Obama Portraits, which brings the acclaimed pieces of Kehinde Wiley’s painting of President Barack Obama and Amy Sherald’s portrait of First Lady Michelle Obama. Chicago was the longtime home of the Obama family. Thus, the Art Institute and Chicago itself share a special history with the former presidential family. Additionally, the painters were the first African Americans commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery to make official presidential portraits.

See Live Latin American Music

Showing from August 20th-22nd, see Ruido Fest, a celebration of Latin American music from the rock genre to pop at Union Park! The headliners this year include: Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, which is an Argentine ska band from Buenos Aires; Pantheón Rococó, a Mexican ska band from Mexico City; and Café Tacvba, an alternative band from Ciudad Satélite, Mexico. There will be over a dozen food vendors there with varied fare for festival goers as well. Additional sanitizing will be in effect, and they will continue to follow the state guidelines for that time. They may require proof of vaccination or proof of a recent negative test.

Going Maskless: Comfortable Ways to Start Socializing Again

With the CDC and certain states allowing for safe gatherings of vaccinated individuals, people are excited to get out and see their loved ones and friends again. Along with this buzzing sense of energy to be out and have fun is a little bit of underlying anxiety for many of us. While we want to get out and spend time, the idea of going maskless can still be a little intimidating. It is totally understandable after a full year of getting used to it as part of our routines! We have come up with a list of ways you can hang out with your friends in a way that feels natural and comfortable as we transition slowly back into more normal social outings.

Picnics and Parks

One of the most comfortable ways to hang out as we adapt to maskless socializing is to do so outside. This feels much more natural to many of us as many states didn’t mandate outdoor masking when not in close proximity to others. One suggestion is that you can plan a potluck-style picnic where everyone brings fun treats to share. Alternatively, just a nice long walk through a park while catching up can be extremely relaxing and fun!

Takeout or Delivery at Home

Looking to do something a little more personal? If your friends are vaccinated and comfortable, you can invite them over to your home and do delivery or takeout. This can take away the stress of reserving a table at a busy restaurant. You can set up a fun hangout plan like a movie or board game night while enjoying professionally cooked food with friends. If you are more interested in going out, many restaurants are still keeping social distancing and indoor masking in effect. This will keep you and your pod comfortable while eating at your favorite locations!

Check Out Local Events

Once you have a group that you are comfortable going out with, it is time to check out local events! There are many safe and exciting events you can attend, and more are bound to appear as things open up. For example, this summer there is the “Behold, Be Held” exhibition at The Block Museum’s first-ever outdoor showing that celebrates human intimacy, touch, and self-care in Chicago. Many craft markets and farmers’ markets are starting to open up, providing comfortable and exciting shopping opportunities with friends. Look around in your area to see what may be popping up there!

Regardless of what you and your group chooses to do, make sure to consider everyone’s different levels of comfort. It will take some people longer than others to acclimate back to normal. Make sure to create space for them to transition at their own pace! They will appreciate the support and care.

While there, dine at one of the many outdoor restaurant options like the Billy Goat Tavern or the Lirica.

The Navy Pier is reopening with many safety precautions in place, such as a facemask requirement, 90+ hand sanitizer dispensers, and Social Distancing Ambassadors to ensure everyone is staying safe. Note that groups of 10 or more are asked not to attend.

Support Local Businesses

The Puerto Rican Cultural Center is working with the businesses on Paseo Boricua in Humboldt Park to host an event called El Jolgorio de Salsa y Más.

April-Chicago-Events

Smelling Flowers to Grabbing a Brew: April Chicago Events

As the weather continues to warm up, many of us are looking to get out and safely attend events. There are many things popping up during this time of year. From flower shows to pop-ups, the city is starting to host more things around town. From smelling flowers to grabbing a brew, we have a list of great ideas to get out and enjoy these April events.

Visit a Spring Flower Show

Spring brings us blooming flowers, meaning that there are multiple spring flower shows to visit around the city. The Garfield Park Conservatory has the show “Saturation,” which focuses on giving attendees a look at flowers with a focus on color. The color-grouped flowers showcase an amazing range of hues and provide a dazzling visual. Lincoln Conservatory also has decided to choose a color-based show, the “Pretty in Pink” flower show has a wide range of flowers showing off rosy tints. Whichever flower show you attend, the pops of color are a much-needed welcome back into nature for many of us.

April-Chicago-Events

Grab Some Beers and Art at a Pop-up

Looking to support local? Chicago Craft: A Collective Grip is the perfect weekly event for you. Presented by Jeppson’s at the Cobra Lounge, you can get your alcoholic fix here while perusing merch and art. You can either build your own six-pack from local breweries, or instead grab some craft cocktails to-go by local bartenders. Of course, as a Jeppson’s event, it wouldn’t be complete without the offering of Malört shots. Beyond all of this alcohol, however, is the opportunity to look at vintage riot fest merch and local band merch. Local artists are featured every week, allowing you to peruse their works and potentially bring one home. If you are feeling lucky, you can enter for one of the raffles and giveaways as well! Masks are required and a limited number of people are allowed in the lounge at a time to ensure safety.

April Chicago events

Get Nerdy

If smelling flowers or grabbing a brew don’t seem your catch, consider going to the Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes exhibit! This MSI exhibit shows off over 300 items that take you into Marvel’s long history. You can see everything here from costumes and props from the movies to very first published Marvel comic from 1939. More of a gamer? Check out Nom Nom: 40 Years of Pac-Man Design and History at the Chicago Gamespace!
