Garfield Park en Blanc
June 19 @ 3:00 pm - 10:00 pm$50
Garfield Park has the lowest life expectancy among all of Chicago’s neighborhoods. As such there is an immerse need for healing, connectedness and celebration around freedom. Garfield Park en Blanc is the premier outdoor event of the year for Garfield Park Residents. The Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Garfield Park Chamber of Commerce, Mrs. Siri Hibbler who is also a Garfield Park native, introduced the idea of bringing Chicago steppers, Legendary DJ Sam Chatman, community businesses and organizations together to culminate the celebration of Juneteenth.
After almost two years of the COVID-19 pandemic that forced many businesses to close their doors, forced residents to have little or no contact with their neighbors and community organizations having to rewrite their operating plans Garfield Park en Blanc is exactly the type of event this community needs, badly.
Find your most elegant all white attire, all white shoes, get your favorite restaurant to prepare your meal of choice and come step and celebrate fathers, Juneteenth and a resilient community.
