Officials in Lincoln Park say the city could soon have a comic book convention, a film festival or a children’s book showcase. City Council member Chris Dardzinski is organizing a group of volunteers to bring new programming, every month, to Lincoln Park. He says eventually he wants the city to host new events every week.
“Where you have a bunch of 23 year old kids driving around on a Saturday night and saying, ‘Hey what do we do?’ They pop in the Lincoln Park phone app—which I want to put together a phone app for the city—and they say, ‘Wow this is going on in Lincoln Park? Let’s go to Lincoln Park.’ That’s where I want to see us be.”

Dardzinski says Lincoln Park only holds annual events during about half of the year right now. He says he is inviting residents to meet in a few weeks and help plan new festivals.
