Each year Mamby celebrates all things that make Chicago great and its patchwork of neighborhoods are a key element to that greatness. In Bronzeville and Hyde Park, Mamby has been welcomed by two of our city’s most culturally diverse communities and rich with music, spoken word, and performing arts. They also happen to be home to numerous socially conscious non-profits that are dedicated to affecting positive social change in our hometown and beyond.
The Community Center is a chance to recognize and elevate these causes, bring festival attendees into the surrounding community, and inspire people to get involved on a local level in their own neighborhoods.
On both Saturday and Sunday, the Community Stage will feature the best and brightest upcoming talent from Chicago, including performances from the likes of Young Chicago Authors, The Common Ground Foundation, Final Alert Dance Team, Haven Studios, The Happiness Club, Harold Washington Cultural Center, Dyett High School, Pachanga, and more.
The neighboring Non-Profit Village will host a variety of crucial social causes from in and around Chicago, including OurMusicMyBody, M.U.R.A.L. (formerly The Lupe Fiasco Foundation), Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Mothers Against Senseless Killings (MASK), LeadersUp, with many more to be announced.
Beyond performance and advocacy, The Cultural Center will host a wide selection of fun in the sun for all attendees, from a fully revamped Food Truck Stop, to the Local Craft Beer Tent, Bai Water Lounge, and even more in what is shaping up to be our best year yet!
