Hosting 20,000 people in the Old St. Pat’s neighborhood for two nights is no small task. Old St. Pat’s Church, Chicago’s oldest public building as well as a treasured historic landmark will be the the host of the 28th annual World’s Largest Block Party.
Among the most anticipated and popular summer events in Chicago, The World’s Largest Block Party, is an annual tradition for young adults to gather to meet, mingle and listen to nationally recognized entertainment.
Throughout the years, countless people have shared the World’s Largest Block Party’s mission of hospitality and community. More than a thousand volunteers each year help host the event. The World’s Largest Block Party is one of Old St. Pat’s most significant fundraisers.
