Mark your calendar’s for Saturday, August 28th! True Star will be hosting our very first “From The ‘Go Fest” concert series this summer. The event, powered by True Star Media teens, will be held in Douglass Park on the West Side of Chicago from 12-7pm. The festival is aimed at cultivating a safe space for youth and creatives to display their talents, as well as promote peace and unity within the city.
It will be a day of fun and full of interactive games and activities. And what’s a festival without music, right? Some of Chicago’s most talented rappers, singers and musicians will perform live on stage. While you’re in the park, stop by and talk to some young entrepreneurs and grab some merch to support Black and Brown businesses!
And did I mention that all of this is FREE? Yep, entry is free! To keep up the good fight against COVID, we will also be encouraging families and youth get vaccinated to ensure that we end this pandemic. Wearing a mask during the even will be required.
Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on this event. Nothing says Chi-town pride like a good festival. Be sure to show up and show out. Have fun and stay safe y’all, and don’t forget to save the date!
