On October 24, 2015 the Chicago Cultural Mile Association plans to launch one of Chicago’s most exciting, new initiatives—The Halloween Gathering. This powerful event will gather Chicago’s vast and diverse creative communities for an all-day festival culminating with a magical nighttime parade. Drawing together world-renowned institutions including the Field Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Columbia College Chicago and the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, as well as unique local organizations like Louder Than a Bomb, Silent Theatre Company, and guilds of artists in assorted fields, this dramatic display will activate Halloween as the “artist’s holiday” along one of the most prestigious cultural avenues in the world.
