WRIGLEYVILLE — Amid a bustling weekend of concerts, Wrigley Field will offer a free theater and art event at its Park at Wrigley plaza.
From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, local artists and actors will be showcasing some of the best entertainment Lakeview has to offer out on the plaza after a weekend of Green Day, Lady Gaga and Zac Brown Band.
Crafts, games and family activities will be offered all day, along with booths for artists like Stephanie Keller from Lakeview's Inkling shop, steampunk glass artist Dawn Donati and comic and pop culture artist Kevin Cusack.
Storytown Children's Improv will present an hour-long musical show for young children at noon, followed by a head-to-head improv match with two teams of comedians at 1:30 p.m.
Laugh Factory Chicago, located a few blocks away at Broadway and Belmont, will send its dating show host Paul Farahvar and producers Andrew Sitter and Ross Kelly for some standup comedy and humorous tales of relationships.
At 4:15 p.m., DJ Curt Cohiba will wrap up the plaza festivities with a set. The Chicago-born musician and Loyola University graduate works with philanthropists and community activists to help students access college and provide a platform for them to master a craft.
The Park at Wrigley opened at the start of the 2017 Cubs season and hosts a wide range of events, from yoga to farmers markets to musical programs for children.
