Chicago River Day is an outdoor event located at over 70 sites including city parks, forest preserves, school yards, and businesses along the banks of the Chicago-Calumet River system and its tributaries. This free and family-friendly event brings thousands of volunteers together to build community around their local waterway; to remove litter that harms people, wildlife, and water quality; and to take collective action towards a Litter Free Chicago-Calumet River system. Volunteers come together after the event to swap stories and celebrate their hard work at our after parties at Blue Island Beer Company and Burning Bush Brewery.
