The Great Chicago Fire Festival and the Importance of Cultural Investment

Chicago’s art scene is internationally renowned in large part because of our willingness to take bold and creative risks. That’s why we applaud the spirit of the inaugural Great Chicago Fire Festival. While technical difficulties kept the event from reaching its full potential, the festival did stir the imaginations of tens of thousands of Chicagoans. We should highlight what worked well, including how the Fire Festival leveraged the power of the arts to activate our public spaces, bring diverse people and neighborhoods together, and celebrate our shared history of reinvention.
