In association with the Chicago Park District’s “Night Out in the Parks” series – an effort to encourage summer programming in neighborhood parks – the Little Black Pearl (LBP), 1060 E. 47th St., will host their upcoming fundraiser, Pearl Fest, by 39th Street Beach, 1099 E. Oakwood Blvd.
The all-day outdoor festival will bring together Chicago culture with art galleries, children’s activities, live entertainment, food truck vendors and local merchants, Aug. 23, from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
“It’s an event to bring the resources and the activities of the organization outside to the community more,” said Zakeya Cartman, director of development at LBP.
