The highly anticipated Silver Room Block Party has returned the weekend of July 16th & 17th, bringing people across Chicagoland and the greater Midwest together for what is known as THE year-end event. Our one-of-a-kind multicultural gathering connects over 25,000 friends for music, dancing, food and fun and our 2022 event will be our best year yet: in addition to our usual multiple music stages, fashion shows, kids’ area, vendor village and more–we’ve grown into a 2-day celebration and moving the festivities to the beautiful lakefront at Oakwood Beach.
