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 cause   

The event supports the life-saving mental health and substance use treatment for which Haymarket Center has been nationally recognized for decades. Haymarket services go far beyond the scope of most treatment programs - with psychiatry, recovery coaching, transitional housing, child care, fatherhood programming, and job training under one roof within our West Loop "hub" location. No one is turned away from Haymarket Center due to financial barriers.

This year's goal is to raise $200,000, which Haymarket will use toward our exciting new project to expand access to life-saving care.

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 between  Friday between 5pm to 10pm and Saturday from noon to 10pm.

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 and in promotional materials prior to the event, and at the festival itself on a banner spanning the street and other festival signage.
