Thanks For Coming Out To Douglas Park This Weekend
Riot Fest had a great day with our neighbors in Douglas Park on Sunday. A huge thanks to the residents and volunteers who did their part for the Douglas Park Beautification Initiative , Community Job Fair, and Community Ticketing Registration.
Registration for the remaining Douglas Park clean up dates are now closed, but if you’re looking for another way to earn Riot Fest tickets, we are still looking for Riot Fest Street Teamers.
Riot Fest is also currently seeking residents from North Lawndale and Douglas Park-adjacent communities to work in temporary positions during this year’s festival. These temporary positions are available in various departments. For more information, CLICK HERE:

And once again, we invite our Douglas Park neighbors to come out and enjoy the Riot Fest 2018 music festival, from September 14-16, free of charge.
That’s right, every year, we welcome area residents to attend the festival. We value community inclusion, and want our neighbors to feel that Riot Fest is not only something they can take part in, but also be proud of. We look forward to another weekend with our neighbors this September.
