Due to the current situation at Congress Theater and the City of
Chicago's building department, we were notified yesterday that the
theater can not be used or open to the public in time for this event
. Although we were placed in this situation two days before the event
, REST ASSURED!! We at Artopia Chicago care about our vendors,
artists, guests, musicians, sponsors, and everyone involved with this
event. THE EVENT WILL GO ON TOMORROW!!! We care about the
community and the arts and have secured a great location for the event
in the creative arts district of Pilsen. The event will be held at the
Chicago Urban Art Society which adds an amazing artistic and
underground feel to the event. Also, we have even better news! With
tomorrow being a great summer day, the event will now be held both
indoors and outdoors!! Bring your sunblock!! We apologize for any
inconveniences this may cause anyone, but again we were forced into
this impossible situation of moving the event with less than two days
notice, and have worked endlessly to make sure the event was not
canceled affecting everyone involved.
The new event location is:
Chicago Urban Art Society
600 W. Cermak
Chicago, IL 60616
PLENTY OF FREE NON-METERED PARKING EVERYWHERE!!!!!
