Echoes of Chicago is a nonprofit whose mission is to create affordable, innovative arts and music events that promote Chicago culture and community while raising awareness and funds for local nonprofits. 

We are entirely volunteer-run and donate 100% of each event’s profits to local nonprofits. Happy Birthday Chicago is our annual fundraiser where we raise funds to support and expand our organization and its future events. 

This year’s event also coincides with Echoes launching a crowdfunding campaign to create a new Chicago Arts and Community Center: The Echo Chamber. Check it out!
