South East Chicago Commission (SECC) and Special Service Area 61 invite local residents and visitors in or near Hyde Park, Kenwood, Oakland, Washington Park, and Woodlawn to join community festivities and experiences this holiday season.
While Amazon may be a convenient way to shop online, local businesses are critical to our neighborhoods and our support is essential. You are encouraged to take advantage of delicious Thanksgiving meals prepared by local award winning chefs, shop for local unique gifts, hunt for photo opportunities, and feel the sense of fellowship.
Nationally-recognized Small Business Saturday is November 26, 2022. Chicago’s South Side Lakefront neighborhoods welcome you to shop your favorite stores, take a small business tour, visit new grand openings, and buy from local vendors at pop up shops and markets. #smallbizlocal2022
Looking for family fun and entertainment? It’s time to get out and explore. The rich diversity on the Southside brings Hanukkah decorations, Kwanzaa celebrations, Santa, Buddy the Elf, live reindeer, ice carving demonstrations, tree lighting ceremonies and more.
