6th Annual Chicago in White Partnered with SECC to Host Annual Event on Southside for First Time

On the evening of August 6th, 600 revelers gathered on the Midway Plaisance at 59th and Woodlawn for Chicago in White. While guests knew the event would be held in Hyde Park, the exact location was not revealed until the morning of the event, adding an element of excitement and mystery.

This 100% Chicago-owned and operated pop-up experience was honored to partner with the SECC to bring this event to the south side for the first time in its six year history. A gypsy jazz band created an elegant mood as guests set up their chic table decor and laid out their meals (Chicago in White is a DIY event, with only tables and chairs provided). Additional elements of the evening included wine tastings and a photo booth sponsored by Chloe Wine Collection, plus gelato and fresh mozzarella samples by Eataly Chicago. A fanfare accompanied Chicago in White's traditional napkin twirl to mark the official start of dinner. As the sun set, guests relaxed in the SECC lounge and danced to the sounds of Southside DJ Doc Holliday.

Thank you to all that came out to support us!
