SEPT. 12 – SEPT. 18, 2021

The Near West Side is a thriving community with exciting and unexpected opportunities for residents, employees, and visitors alike. To celebrate our neighborhood of neighborhoods, Near West Side Partners held the first annual Near West Side Week from Sept. 12 – Sept. 18, 2021.  

It was an action-packed week, with activities for all to enjoy. Visitors uncovered some of the Near West Side’s hidden gems during a scavenger hunt, families explored the outdoors on a bike ride and walk from the Near West Side to the Hank Aaron State Trail, neighbors joined together for an outdoor movie night, and everyone had a chance to win gift card giveaways to Near West Side restaurants, and much more!

We hope you enjoyed as we celebrated the many reasons why the Near West Side is a great place to live, work, and play!
