It’s back to school season, and that means it’s time for Marquette Community Day! Come to Marquette Park to end summer on a high note while you get ready to head back to class.

Marquette Community Day is a massive back to school event which provides kids from all over the South Side with backpacks, school supplies, haircuts, and more to help prepare for the new school year. Backpacks are available while supplies last. Registration is not required but is recommended—fill out this form to pre-register.

In addition, there’s plenty of fun to be had with a bouncy house, pony rides, live music, and other activities. We’ll also have food, drinks, and local vendors selling unique items.
