Show held in Outdoor Courtyard and entrance to Courtyard of Univ. of Chicago's Hyde Park Shopping Center. The Courtyard provides a wonderful setting for the show with benches, trees, flowers, & tables and even a fountain. A popular destination to socialize & attend events as well as to shop & provides a great ambiance for the show.. Among other stores/shops, there is a French Bakery and French Restaurant located in the outdoor courtyard. Walgreen's & Treasure Island also in the center. (Treasure Island is where University of Chicago/Hyde Park customers shop plus many who come from far and near). We have found customers very enthusiastic about the show as well as very knowledgeable. Show requested by members who exhibited here in the past & found customers to be very supportive of work created by the exhibitor https://www.kwakol.co.za/demo. After the downtown Museum Campus Hyde Park has largest concentration of cultural institutions in the City with a great cultural diversity as it is heavily patronized by professors, personnel & others from the University of Chicago plus Hyde Park Residents & many more who come from far beyond. Courtyard has security gates which close at midnight and open early in the morning (subject to change). Your display may be left overnight at your own risk. Unloading/loading is convenient & there is a large lot on the premises for free parking. Both center & customers support a quality show. Show widely publicized as well as advertised.
