The popular Vintage Garage Chicago will continue Uptown for a 3rd season. If you’re unfamiliar with Vintage Garage Chicago, it’s a “drive-in” flea market that’s helped bring life to a cool stretch of Broadway in Uptown. We’d love for you to join us for Chicago’s only all vintage monthly event!
To kick off the season, bicyclists dressed in vintage garb will gather April 27th at the Garage at Foster and Broadway for the annual Vintage Style Ride.
The best in vintage outfits and bikes join Harry Osterman, Alderman of the 48th Ward and ride along the waterfront.
Riders will meet in front of the Vintage Garage for a 9am ride and then the Garage will open for the season at 10 a.m. At the opening you can expect to see 100 of the very best vintage dealers in the Midwest with everything from antique to Mid Century furniture (decorators take note), vinyl to vintage clothing and jewelry and anything in between.
The Vintage Style Ride is free and anyone can join in and it will begin at 9am Sunday April 27th. Admission for the Vintage Garage is $5.00.
Note the hours change for 2014. The Garage will open from 10-5 this year instead of 9-5. Vintage Garage is also the 3rd Sunday of the month EXCEPT for April of 2014 which will be the 4th Sunday avoiding conflict with Easter on the 3rd Sunday.

- April 27th: Season Opener Vintage Style Ride- Music with Soda Gardocki
