About the Event


About the Event


THE SILVER ROOM BLOCK PARTY IS... 

The Silver Room Sound System Block Party, started in 2002, celebrates cultural diversity through expression, music and art, and is a community event hosted by The Silver Room and owner, Eric Williams and organized along with a team. A donation at the gate is suggested.  Once a quaint affair for friends and family of The Silver Room, the event has grown into a vibrant and diverse, all-ages, neighborhood gathering and continues to be a platform for famed and up-and-coming artists from the Chicago-land area.

This year, we're proud to partner for the third time with Downtown Hyde Park Chicago (Special Service Area #61) to present the 15th Annual Silver Room Sound System Block Party on Saturday, July 21st, 2018. For residents and visitors alike, Downtown Hyde Park is not simply a commercial corridor found in any Chicago neighborhood... Downtown Hyde Park is its own small town - embracing and supporting a rich blend of shopping, dining, cultural attractions and business services - that invites those who walk its streets to experience the neighborhood's storied history of eclecticismwarmth and individuality.  

ABOUT THE SILVER ROOM

Now located in the heart of Hyde Park (previously in Wicker Park’s shopping district), The Silver Room is much more than a retail storefront, offering an eclectic mix of handmade jewelry, accessories, clothing, art and music — much of it a representation of a diverse group of local artisans, in addition to international artists and designers. In 1997, Owner Eric Williams opened TSR in an effort to redefine the original parameters of a traditional retail operation by taking a community focus — providing a gathering place, event space and artist gallery for the neighborhood. This business plan proved to be a successful one and TSR has grown to be the touchstone for many in Chicago for community, culture and arts, as well as a well-respected and highly recommended, local boutique.
