Argyle Lunar New Year Celebration
Saturday, February 5, 2022
12:00-4:00pm (parade kick-off at 1:00pm)
Join Uptown United and 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman on Argyle Street in 2022 as Uptown continues its annual tradition (going back 40+ years) of celebrating the Lunar New Year! To welcome the Year of the Tiger, we’ll be hosting the Lunar New Year Parade on Saturday February 5th (kick-off at 1:00pm sharp at Argyle & Winthrop) featuring 20+ local community groups, cultural institutions, dancers and performers! In addition, a number of local organizations are planning pop-ups with family-friendly activities that day between 12:00-4:00pm.
COVID-19 Safety Protocols
Please note that we are closely following any guidance provided for public events from the City of Chicago related to COVID-19. The parade is an outdoor celebration, and the route will cover 8 blocks with plenty of room to spread out and watch from either side. NOTE: As most parade-goers line up along both Argyle St. & Broadway, please take advantage of the roomier sidewalks on Sheridan & Ainslie to ensure everyone’s safety. The parade will kick-off at 1:00pm headed east from Argyle & Winthrop, south on Sheridan, west on Ainslie, and north on Broadway back to Argyle. Masks are encouraged.
