Event description


In 1893 Chicago introduced the "City Beautiful" aesthetic movement to the world- the idea that the beautification of a city in a classic tradition would increase the quality of life. Once a year, for a few short hours, this vision comes back to life as thousands gather in an elegant yet whimsical celebration of all that is Chicago in White.
This year's non-profit partners are the South East Chicago Commission and #3S4H with Habitat for Humanity.

Chicago in White is a 21+ event.

This year's secret location will be announced via email and social media on the morning of August 6th

We are excited to welcome this year's sponsors: Chloe Wine Collection and Eataly, along with our new partners Handmade Events and Luxury Management.

You can pre-order Chloe Wine at a reduced rate of $25.00 (+tax), and pick up on the day of our event, or purchase on site for $28.00 (+tax) per bottle.
