Winter Block Party
Winter Block Party is back! Join Vocalo, Young Chicago Authors and WBEZ on February 8 for Winter Block Party 2020: We The People.

Winter Block Party celebrates hip hop’s ability to connect people across generations and highlights the multifaceted culture of Chicago hip hop through a variety of media – dance, poetry, music, and live art.
The takeover starts at noon at Metro and Smartbar. Guests can take part in the fun including a dance workshop, pop-up barbershop, local artist market, face painting and rap and break-dance battles as well as check out the turntable showcase and much more. Vocalo Radio will also be broadcasting live!

Confirmed artists include Brittney Carter, Ang13 & E Brown, Ca$h Era, Mental Giants and many more!

This year’s theme celebrates the power of community. Through programming, we aim to inspire attendees to learn more about civic engagement opportunities in their communities.

This event is free and family-friendly. RSVP today!
