The 14th Annual Silver Room Block Party.
The Sound System Block Party is a day long celebration of Music, Dance and Community!
We bring a wide range of the arts to Chicago's Southside with 4 outdoor stages, 8 neighborhood in-store locations and over 100 performances of music and visual artists. What started off as a small gathering of friends has become Chicago's best homegrown Block Party, 15,000 strong!
Thanks to The Silver Room owner Eric Williams for years of funding this event. We have grown and so have our expenses. In order to continue this tradition at the level you've come to expect, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
It's with the Block Party spirit of community that we invite you to contribute your dollars.
Any amount will help!
WHY DO WE DO THIS?
We believe in Chicago. Coming together 15,000 strong for a day of love is the best way we know to speak the truth about who Chicago really is. We know that music and art can unite us all. We know what the power of togetherness feels like. If you've been to the Block Party, you know too!
YOUR SUPPORT MEANS...
We know how much this event means to so many of you. The Block Party = Independent Music you don't hear on the radio.
The Block Party = Family friendly fun, bring yo kids!
The Block Party = One of the truly all-ages events in Chicago.
We are grassroots with the mission of spreading art, community and love.
