Regular Events

Chinese New Year Dim Sum

We meet in Chinatown to celebrate the Chinese New Year and eat Dim Sum.

Concert and Picnic in Millennium Park

People bring blankets and food to hang out on the lawn, catch up with old friends and make new ones, and listen to classical at the Music Festival in Millenium Park.

Midwestwind on Lake Michigan

A relaxing weekend on a private beach in Lake Michigan, everyone brings some food and drink to share (as well as their tents and sleeping bags)–local activities include hiking at the Kettle Moraine park, visiting the local llama farm, and apple picking (when in season).

If you have an idea for an event please contact the Chicago Steering Committee. We'd love to hear your ideas.
