CHICAGO — State Street will close from Lake to Madison on select Sundays between July 11 and Sept. 12 for Sundays on State.
The open streets initiative will bring music, food, performances and shopping to The Loop. People who register to attend automatically will be entered to win a $1,000 Loop staycation package.
“This is not going to be your average street fair,” Chicago Loop Alliance CEO Michael Edwards, whose group will host Sundays on State, said in a statement.
Organizations and community members submitted proposals for activities that were finalized by a Chicago Loop Alliance committee.
The July 11 opening will feature interactive painting, wrestling, yoga and circus performers. Other Sundays on State events will be held on July 18, July 25, August 8, August 22, August 29, September 5 and September 12.
“After the year we’ve had, we want to offer an opportunity to come together, participate and heal with one another,” Edwards said.
