We will commemorate our 30th Anniversary with a series of three events beginning with a community speaking engagement in late May and culminating in a community celebration on June 16th. 
  • A presentation at the West Logan Square / Avondale Block Club meeting on Thursday, May 25th at St. Nicolai Church, 3000 N Kedzie at 7 PM. UPAC co-founder Joel Monarch will talk about the genesis & history of the organization and current UPAC Director of Development Robert Castillo will talk about UPAC's upcoming 2017 Events.

    There will also be a small display of UPAC memorabilia through the years. 

  • A window display at local business, Monarch Thrift Shop, located at 2866 N Milwaukee. The display will honor UPAC's 30TH Anniversary and be up from Weds. June 7 thru Friday, June 16th. There will be an unveiling of the display for the community on Wednesday, June 7th before the monthly UPAC meeting. More details TBA. 
    30th Anniversary Celebration
  • The grand finale will be the official UPAC 30th Anniversary Celebration which will take place on Friday, June 16th at Hairpin Arts Center, 2810 N Milwaukee, 2nd fl. From 7-8 PM, there will be a Council Reception for former & current UPAC members. It will be followed by The Community Party which kicks off at 8pm and runs until 10pm featuring music by DJ OCD.

    Both the Reception & Community Party are for persons 21+. Former UPAC Council members should RSVP for the Council Reception to: info@unityparkchicago.org and guests will be able to register for the Community Party using Eventbrite beginning May 16th.
