Head to State Street for summer fun at Sundays on State

 Sundays on State (that great Street) kicks off tomorrow, Sunday, July 11 between 11am-8pm.

The free admission summer festival will close the street to traffic from Lake to Madison on select Sundays throughout the summer.

The fest will resemble a giant community block party featuring food, performances, family activities and more than 70 on-street activations.

In addition retail, bars, restaurants, and local attractions including Gene Siskel Film Center (who will be offering $1 popcorn in front of their theatre at 164 N. State) will participate.

Highlights include 

  • American Writers Museum – writing activations including typewriters for attendees to use, their My America: Immigrant and Refugee Writers Today exhibit with luggage tags for attendees to write their family’s immigration story, and their Word Play exhibit with mad-lib and magnetic poetry games. 
  • CircEsteem – circus performance including an aerial rig. 
  • Family-ism Face Paint Factory – professional face painting and a photo backdrop for selfies. 
  • The Joffrey Ballet – Academy students will perform two to three dance pieces, and the Community Engagement Extension program students will perform three dance pieces.
