Return of The Full Moon Jam!
Updated: Jul 19
Due to a variety of factors beyond our control, the Full Moon Jam will be forced to cancel the Humboldt Park Jam originally scheduled for Thursday, July 22. We are rescheduling the jam for a future date at another location that we hope to announce soon.
Long story short, there were unfortunate complications acquiring the necessary paperwork, and we will not be able to get it in time. We would obviously still love to be able to host a Jam at Humboldt Park in the future, so hopefully, we will be able to make it work someday.
This is unpleasant news, and all of the Jam organizers are heartbroken to say the least. We are sad because one of our goals over the past few years has been to reach out to new communities across Chicago to share our celebration. We are frustrated after having put a LOT of work into planning this unique event, as have friends and partners of the Full Moon Jam. We are disappointed because we know all of you reading this message are probably sitting there feeling equally bummed out for something you were also excited for.
However, there is a silver lining! We are hopeful and grateful to already be working on rescheduling the jam at a different location that can accommodate our community and our celebration in its fullness. We have a little more waiting to do until our return, but we WILL be gathering together very, VERY soon. A Jam IS going to happen, but we just have a couple more ducks to get in a row before we can say when and where.
Once again, thank you all for your patience and understanding, and for spreading the word among friends about the cancellation and rescheduling. We want to thank our advocates and partners for their continued support, including Krista Bryski Richard and the Night Out in the Parks program, Ashley Bertling of Pyrotechniq/Black Circle Creative, and many many others.
Making the Full Moon Jam happen is not easy, but it is always worth it. Much love and thanks to you all, and we look forward to sharing exciting news on our next event soon.
