GrowingStation Annual October Fest Hosts 'The Great Fire Traveling Truck Show'
The Traveling Truck Show + Garden Harvest Fest!
“The Great Fire: a Traveling Truck Show” is a wacky performing arts event that will tour Chicago this October with a moving truck as our pop-up stage. Reviving the form of early American traveling shows and referencing Chicago neighborhood histories after the Great Fire of 1871, we playfully spin a tale that engages audiences with storytelling, music, comedy, multimedia dioramas, and magic.
From main characters The Hawk and Denim Dennis to guest performers Poor Elvis and a fire-breathing temptress, learn more about our eclectic mix of characters and local acts here: http://travelingtruckshow.org/who/
Sideshows will start an hour before the show - Come get your photo with the Bee-Bearded Lady and participate in Proud Pigeon’s “Coooooky Contest”! See the mysterious Man in a Bag, and practice your ESP with Tim the Mind Bender!
The Stage-show (lasting approximately 90 minutes) - You won’t want to miss the story inspired by neighborhood historical characters and memories, or the wide-ranging talents of guest performers on the truck-stage!
FREE ADMISSION! (some sideshow activities may request a donation—Tarot Reading, Caricatures…)
