Join the USO of Illinois in support of the local military community at Clark After Dark, Chicago's only downtown block party!

The USO of Illinois, through the support of Alderman Brendan Reilly of the 42nd Ward and Boss Bar, gives summer it's last “HOO-AH!” by rocking the block at Clark After Dark. The USO of Illinois’ annual Clark After Dark block party celebrates America’s military service members and their families. Proceeds from the event benefit the USO of Illinois programs and services that serve over 330,000 military personnel and military families in Illinois.

The event will feature live music by 16 Candles (Voted Chicago’s Best Cover Band!), Liquidated Damages, and the Moxie Sisters, military vehicle displays, food and drink specials, raffle and much more! USO Clark After Dark is held in River North at 420 N. Clark Street on W. Hubbard Street, between N. Clark and N. LaSalle.

A non-profit organization, the USO of Illinois is fully supported by the generosity of the American people. The USO’s Clark After Dark gives Chicagoans an opportunity to support U.S. Armed Forces members and show their appreciation.
