Daley Plaza

Time Out says

Named for infamous Chicago mayor Richard J. Daley, this large plaza is directly adjacent to a building (also named for the mayor) which houses several city offices. The courtyard contains an untitled Picasso sculpture that was given to the city by the artist in 1967. Throughout the year, Daley Plaza plays host to food truck meet-ups, cultural events, a farmers' market and the annual Christkindlmarket.

What’s on

House on the Plaza

Take a midday break and head to Daley Plaza for a dance party. Live DJs will be spinning house music so get ready to get down.

Memorial Day Parade

After a wreath is laid at the eternal flame in Daley Plaza at 11am in remembrance of those who died serving in the U.S. armed services, Chicago's annual Memorial Day Parade marches down State Street (from Lake to Van Buren streets) beginning at noon. Crowds line the street waving flags and paying their respects as part of this Chicago tradition, which dates all the way back to 1870.
