Celebrate Hyde Park Series

Celebrate Hyde Park is a series of festivals and a celebration of the Hyde Park community with events designed to bring residents and visitors of all ages to east 53rd Street for fun, food, music, art, and family entertainment. 

The Hyde Park Vitality Committee kicked off the first festival in 2010, with key sponsorship from the SECC, the Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce and UChicago’s Office of Civic Engagement.

Since then, Celebrate Hyde Park has blossomed into a strong neighborhood celebration that highlights the many local businesses, restaurants, artists and musical talent that make Hyde Park an integral part of the Culture Coast of Chicago's south side neighborhoods.


The Celebrate Hyde Park Summer Music Festival, presented by The University of Chicago Office of Civic Engagement, returns mid-summer this year.  

Check out photos from the 2013 Summer Music Festival held July 20-21, 2013.
