MUSIC: CITY SOUNDS

The Sheffield Street Festival will host
different live bands throughout the
weekend, with a big selection of talents,
styles, and genres. Come and rock out
with  some of Chicago’s favorite cover
bands and original artists playing your
favorite tunes!

This year we will have an acoustic band,
a Beatles tribute band playing all their top
hits, a Tom Petty tribute, a Yacht Rock
cover band, and much more!

GARDENS: TAKE A STROLL

Visit more than 100 beautiful
neighborhood gardens on a self-guided
tour. Guidebooks, which contain the map
and textual descriptions of the gardens,
are available at the Garden Center on the
lawn in front of St. Vincent de Paul
Church with a $10 donation.

SO MUCH MORE!

Block Clubs of Lincoln Park Unite!

SNA has setup a new Lincoln Park Block Club website for new or established block clubs in Lincoln Park where we can communicate safety issues, crimes, new ideas and general concerns between other block clubs in Lincoln Park.  People who form block clubs are concerned and care about their communities and share information, identify concerns and act collectively to address those concerns. “We cannot overcome what we ignore.” If we stay connected and communicate issues we will be vigilant and stronger.

Lincoln Yards: When can we talk?

“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.” —Jane Jacobs
