The Silver Room Sound System Block Party is a mainstay in summertime Chi. This year our theme is BACK TOGETHER AGAIN. We’re back and better than ever! To make up for lost time, this year we’re having a two-day celebration. Plus, we’ll be partying with the skyline in our sights and the lake by our side because we’re moving to Oakwood Beach!

From grown folks to kiddos–it’s fun for everyone! You can expect the usual dope musical lineup across multiple stages, plus we’ve got a Food Court, Health + Wellness Area, Design Pavilion, Basketball, Beach Volleyball, and more to come!

Thanks for Your Support!

"It is the pinnacle of the summer as we all come together in celebration of each other. From untapped music, great food, and expressive art, we seek to bring a holistic experience of culture and family"

Family Friendly Event

Since the conception of the Sound System Block party in 2002, we have expanded our modest affair of friends and family to be what many know today as the year-end event. Over the years we have curated a unique line up, from artists like Anthony Nicholson, Ashley Nosike, Vic Spencer, and Billy Branch to name a few. However, without the continued outpour of love and personal expression from the community we hold dear, we would not have been able to create or sustain such a movement. We are appreciative of each member of our community and your continued engagement of the Sound System Block Party.
