In 2015 the Chicago Cultural Mile Association launched one of Chicago’s most exciting, new initiatives—The Halloween Gathering. This powerful event gathered Chicago’s vast and diverse creative communities for an afternoon festival culminating with a magical nighttime parade. Drawing together world-renowned institutions including the Field Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, as well as unique local organizations like Louder Than a Bomb, Silent Theatre Company, and guilds of artists in assorted fields, this dramatic display activated Halloween as the “artist’s holiday” along one of the most prestigious cultural avenues in the world.
