Culture in My Neighborhood Events at CPL

We are excited to offer engaging and exciting cultural and civic events for Culture in My Neighborhood, a new initiative that's part of the City of Chicago's Arts77 recovery and reopening plan.

As part of a new partnership between the Chicago Park District, CPL and Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), Culture in My Neighborhood supports citywide cultural programming through grants and commission opportunities for artists and organizations.

Culture in My Neighborhood events highlight the myriad of cultures that make Chicago our home, from Rogers Park to Hegewisch, and everywhere in between. These events for all ages include performances of traditional Korean drumming, walking tours through Uptown, making ofrendas to celebrate Dia de Los Muertos and much more.

Join us for one of these special events at CPL and visit the Park District and DCASE websites to find more free activities near you.
