Ald. Stephanie Coleman (16th), whose office is co-sponsoring the event, helped launch the first festival in 2021 to bring another family-fun event to the community

This year’s festival theme will honor “Englewood Excellence — its past, present and future,” according to the event description. 

“The live performances are great, but it’s the programming, the vibe, the energy, and the love that you’ll truly feel,” Coleman has previously said. “We deserve this. There is good in Englewood.”
