Due to the coronavirus, many events have been canceled or postponed, and our listings may not reflect those changes. Please check with organizers before making plans.
We're kicking off Von Steuben Day weekend with a free screening of Ferris Bueller's Day Off (PG-13) where Ferris (Matthew Broderick) unabashedly lip syncs "Twist and Shout" at the Von Steuben Parade in downtown Chicago.
Lawn chairs and blankets are highly recommended. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are welcome. Outside alcohol is not allowed to be brought into the park; however, beer and wine are sold at Niko Niko's on-site along with delicious Greek and American food. The Historic Market Square neighborhood is also home to many other restaurants that provide take-out food service. [Organizer's description]
