Juicebox Series Touring Performances

April 7, 2017 - April 8, 2017

Chicago Cultural Center & Garfield Park Conservatory

This winter and spring, Urban Gateways is partnering with Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) for the second year to present touring performances through the popular Juicebox series! With its engaging music and dance performances in a kid-friendly setting, the FREE admission Juicebox programs are geared toward the stroller set, but are engaging for the whole family. Audiences experience a diverse range of artistic and educational performances, with artists regularly inviting youngsters to move, dance, and interact.

The final pair of Urban Gateways Juicebox performances will take place April 7 and 8, featuring vibrant West African drumming and dance by touring group Soli. See details below, and find more information about the Juicebox series right here on the DCASE website!
