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.
