The Back to Banks Blue Jay Bazaar is now on two days, Friday & Saturday, March 22-23, 2019. The re-imagined event will feature Friday night Lenten fare, with pounds and pounds of delicious seafood and music by the Bucktown All-Stars. The fun will continue on Saturday with plenty of food, refreshments, activities, raffles, and live entertainment from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.


There are still a few spots available to volunteer on Bazaar on Friday or Saturday! Serve up some delicious food, work a shift in a fun-filled booth, and much more!
