The third annual Chicago Sukkah Design Festival takes place in North Lawndale. This festival features design-literacy programming and pays tribute to the weeklong Jewish harvest holiday of Sukkot. It serves as a platform for fostering dialogue and enhancing solidarity between the Jewish community with historical ties to North Lawndale and the predominantly Black community residing there today. The event brings together a diverse group of architectural designers and representatives from community organizations to collaboratively design and construct sukkahs (small outdoor pavilions). These sukkahs are then entrusted to the community organizations for continued use after the festival ends.
