  • Hyde Park Garden Fair Spring Sale: (Friday – Saturday) This semi-annual plant sale is free to the public. It features a wide variety of plants, vegetables, and flowers to choose from.
  • Krista K Ten Year Anniversary Sale: (Friday – Sunday) Okay, so the 20% discount all weekend probably means money will be spent….but hey, they are serving free cupcakes while you shop! That counts, right?
  • West African Dance Party: WBEZ radio personality Tony Sarabia hosts a free dance party in honor of the current “Studio Malick” exhibition that is taking place at the De Paul Art Museum.
