Oct 16th 2022

Between the Closing Day of the Chicago Sukkah Design Festival, Open Boulevards, Journey Chicago, and Open House Chicago, Douglas Boulevard will be the place to be! Join us for food, music, and activities for all ages as we prepare to reinstall the sukkahs in their permanent neighborhood locations. Among the highlights:

  • The Haitian American Museum of Chicago will present “We Walk: A Celebration of Black Community,” while Crossing Borders Music will perform specially commissioned music as part of Journey Chicago

  • Stone Temple Baptist Church is one of the Open House Chicago sites, and will hold guided tours of the building (originally the First Roumanian Congregation synagogue) every half hour from 2:00–5:00 p.m.

  • The Chicago Mayor’s Office, Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, Department of Transportation, and others will present the second of three Open Boulevards events in 2022. This one will close down Douglas Blvd. from Central Park to Independence (and up to 13th St.) for biking, walking, scooting, and games, music, rollerskating, and much more!

  • The Sukkah Design Festival will have its closing day, as we look to transition the sukkahs to their next phases, and begin collaborations toward a 2023 festival!
