The Winter Block Party is a daylong celebration of hip-hop arts and culture. This year’s theme “Do the Winter Block Party Thing”, is inspired by the iconic Spike Lee movie titled, “Do The Right Thing.”

Our goal is to showcase artists, musicians, poets, producers and dancers who “do right” by their communities in using the power of hip-hop to bring people together.

Like any good block party, guests will get a chance to dance courtesy of Vocalo Radio and Young Chicago Authors DJs, view dance showcases and street-art battles. Vocalo Radio 91.1 FM will also broadcast live from Smartbar Chicago and interview some of the day’s featured creatives.

The full festival schedule can be found at wbez.org/events.

The celebration will continue into the evening with a concert featuring Chicago-based hip-hop artists and performers.

Concert Headliners Include
Ric Wilson * theMIND * Tasha * SECRET WALLS BATTLE *
Hosted by Jill Hopkins-Olewnik & Matt Muse
