FREE Family Friendly Fire Jam THIS Wed at Garfield Park Conservatory 7/10 #originalphotos

The very first Garfield Park Conservatory Fire Jam is this Wednesday, July 10!  This is a FREE event.

This is one of our favorite monthly summer events to shoot!   

Jam starts at 7pm & ends at 9pm SHARP. The park will officially close at this time.   Everyone is welcome to come early to the conservatory and have a picnic in the back.  Conservatory is open all day long.

LOCATION: The jam will take place at Garfield Park Conservatory - the Green Line stop, Garfield Park Conservatory, will let you off right at GPC. The jam itself will take place on the outdoor green space behind the conservatory building. You must enter through the main building to get to the field. ENTRY TO GPC IS FREE TO THE PUBLIC. 

PARKING: GPC has a parking lot on the south side of the conservatory. Parking is free, but be sure to arrive early to make sure you get a spot. There is also parking along the street.

MUSIC & DRUMMERS: The first half of the jam (7-8pm) will have music provided by Rhythm Revolution drum group. For the 2nd half of the jam (8-9pm), music will be provided by the FMJ drum circle, so bring your drums and join in from 8-9pm.

ABSOLUTELY NO ALCOHOL or other substances, please leave them at home. This is a family-friendly event, so let's keep it safe, clean and welcoming. Picnics are welcome.
LEAVE NO TRACE: take out what you brought in, and if you see any trash on the ground, please pick it up and throw it away, let's leave the park in better shape than when we found it!

For all other info, see:

If you're not following the FMJs on Twitter, please follow @Full_Moon_Jam - this will be one of the best ways to get up-to-date, near-immediate info in case of cancellations, jam changes, etc.

A NOTE ABOUT WEATHER: Nature has NOT been kind to us this year, so we're keeping a sharp eye on the weather. PLEASE make sure to check the FB page, Twitter Feed or your email for updates and (hopefully not!) cancellation notices. As this jam is taking place at the conservatory, GPC will have final say on jam cancellation/

This is the first of what we hope will be many future jams at GPC, so let's start this off on the right foot! See you on Wednesday!!
