Going to our Thursday Preview Party? On top of free carnival rides, sideshow performers, and exclusive merch (trust us, it’s really cool), we’ve got more details on all the one-of-a-kind Riot Fest attractions you can enjoy. For anyone hoping to get married or dunk the Riot Fest Twitter Person, read carefully!
THE RIOT FEST WEDDING CHAPEL3:30 PM, 5:30 PM, 8:30 PM (10 Slots Each)
You’ve asked for it (a lot, actually). So this year, you can get legally married at Riot Fest—with an ordained minister at our own Wedding Chapel, decked out and ready for anyone hoping to tie the knot. There will be three time slots to sign up for—you can find the chapel, where sign-ups occur, on our map included below.
Please note: you will need a marriage license to tie the knot at Riot Fest! Couples will need to appear together at one of the Cook County Clerk’s six locations; full details on that here. We will even have a photographer stationed at our decorated Chapel to capture your special day!
DUNK THE RIOT FEST TWITTER PERSON!4:00 PM – 5:00 PM / $10 for 5 Throws
Has our social media person ever roasted you? Annoyed you? Mocked your love of cantaloupe? Get your revenge: throw a perfect pitch and send them swimming in our dunk tank. You get five throws for the amazing donated price of $10—all proceeds will go to our friends at the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless.
But wait—how do you even find all this stuff? That’s a great question, and I’m glad you asked. These attractions are marked on the map below—plus we’ve got all the info you need in our 2021 transportation guide on bike routes, CTA trains, and limited paid parking availability. Take a look at our map, save it to your phone, and we’ll see you all this weekend.
