What To Expect

Join us on January 26th for the second annual Dia De La Concha. Dia de la Concha is a celebration of the love for everyone’s favorite pan dulce: the Concha. Chicago’s best Mexican bakeries will be serving up one of Mexico’s most quintessential pastries. The afternoon will consist of live music, local vendors and specialty Mexican drinks, and of course, a variety of delicious Pan Dulce.

Grass Root Events is dedicated to supporting our local organizations and is proud to have Mujeres Latinas en Accion as this years beneficiary. Help us reach our target donation of $7,500 with a stretch goal of $10,000. If you'd like more info on MLEA you can visit their website at http://www.mujereslatinasenaccion.org/

Why is admission $10 this year? 
This year we added an admission price to accommodate for a larger venue, staff, more bakeries and a parking lot. This will also help us achieve our goal to fundraise $7,500 for Latinas en Accion. Adults are $10, 17 & under $1.
