The award-winning Sundays on State series transforms Chicago's most iconic street, State Street, when it closes to vehicular traffic for select Sundays during the summer. Neighbors from every Chicago community and beyond unite for a free, interactive block party, while safely enjoying art, culture, active recreation, food, drinks, shopping, and local attractions in the heart of everyone’s neighborhood – the Loop. Chicago Loop Alliance's Sundays on State series accelerates the economic recovery, unites the community, and creates joy! 92 percent of 2022 activation participants came from underrepresented business owners#SundaysOnState
