West Loop Fest

On July 26th and July 27th, Haymarket Center will present our 12th Annual West Loop Family Festival. This event brings West Loop families and businesses together for two days of live entertainment and activities in our vibrant neighborhood, and it gives Haymarket Center the opportunity to honor our neighbors while also sharing our story of helping 12,000 people annually.    

The event 

The generous past support of West Loop businesses and individual donors has allowed this festival to become a summer tradition. Due to its popularity, we are expanding our Street Festival to two days of events on Washington Boulevard, which will be closed off between Morgan and Green Streets on Friday between 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm and on Saturday from noon to 10:00 pm.

We expect the event to draw more than 3,000 local neighbors of all ages, and 30 or more local vendors with interactive games, food, information, services and giveaways.


Haymarket Center seeks Street Festival sponsors at the levels of Festival Champion ($5,000), Haymarket Hero ($2,500) and Summer Supporter ($1,000). Sponsors who make their commitments by July 20th will be recognized on our website, in promotional materials  and at the festival on a banner spanning the street and other signage.

Workshop Title: Trauma and Addiction: Recovering the Self

Description: It is well known that childhood trauma increases a person’s vulnerability to addiction, depression, and other social behavioral problems. Children who experience complex trauma do not have the cognitive abilities to understand and makes sense of their suffering nor do they have the means to protect themselves as it is happening. Development in such an environment changes the way the brain responds to stress throughout the life span and can create a fixed mindset which sees all stress as a threat, binding the individual to the mercy of a hypervigilant fear based response system and burying their real self under a persona that inhibits self-expansion and thriving.


We are all extremely unique but are being raised in an environment that prefers to teach, work and explore life in a homogeneous way. From the first moment of our lives we have been taught what is expected of us. Those messages are deeply embedded in our lives. They are so comfortable, even if we are aware of their negativity in our lives, we will fight tooth and nail to justify, and hold onto these rules. This workshop presents new ideas, based in science and mindfulness, to become aware of subconscious connections we are unknowingly reinforcing. This workshop takes the conversation of “Recovering from,” and shifts our perspective to the importance of “Recovering to.”
