The Silver Room will host a community forum


Before hosting the 16th annual Block Party, The Silver Room will hold a community meeting to discuss street closures, safety plans and overall festival details on Wednesday, July 10, at 6 p.m. at St. Paul the Redeemer, 4945 S. Dorchester Ave.

This year’s festival will take place on Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 10 a.m to 9 p.m along 53rd Street between Lake Park Avenue to Dorchester Avenue. Since the Block Party has moved from Wicker Park to Hyde Park, the free festival has drawn crowds of over 40,000 to 53rd Street.
