About Roaring City
Join us for Roaring City- Chicago’s newest neo-vintage music and performance festival! Featuring live bands, DJs, sideshow, circus, burlesque, ambient performance and more!
The Roaring City festival celebrates the future in the spirit of yesteryear- bringing vaudevillian style entertainment from all over the United States for one weekend of awe and delight. You’ll be taken through time in the heart of historical Logan Square within our prohibition era host venue, The Logan Square auditorium (built in 1915).
It’s an old time spectacular event with a futuristic twist. Featuring a huge variety of performance, you’ll be amazed by stage acts, laugh aloud to circus clowns, dance like no-one’s looking to DJs, rock out to electrified swing-style bands, and be enticed for more every step of the way.
In addition to non-stop live entertainment, Roaring City will feature a vendor market curated with the crafts people and artists of Chicago.
All this time traveling and dancing might work up a thirst – never fear, (should you be over 21) the auditorium will be ready with a full bar of soothing libations.
The Roaring City Festival is brought to you by Calliope Presents– the Chicago’s premier neo-vintage entertainment company. Past events include the Carnivale Delirium series, the Rouge Electroswing Party, You Don’t Know Glitch, and involvement with the Hanger Stage at Electric Forest Festival.
We hope you can join us for this neo-historic occasion, pre sale tickets will be limited so don’t hesitate to take advantage of early bird pricing!
