About Fiesta del Sol
As mentioned above, House of Sol is featured as a part of Chicago’s annual Fiesta del Sol celebration, which is an annual fund raising event organized by the Pilsen Neighbors Community Council (P.N.C.C.). P.N.C.C. is a grassroots organization founded in 1954. Its organizing efforts focus on issues such as education, healthcare, housing and civil rights. One of the main programs funded almost exclusively by the Fiesta del Sol fundraising is the “Fiesta del Sol Scholars Program”. Since 1997 they’ve awarded close to one million dollars in scholarship assistance to deserving area college students.
The festival itself (which stretches roughly seven city blocks) is truly a unique experience. It features a wide array of activities for everyone in the family, from carnival games & rides, live music, food vendors, free health screenings, a college fair, and much more. Every year FDS averages over one million patrons over the 4-day event, making it the largest festival of it’s kind in the Midwest.
House Head Speaks: Before H2S was born, I attended the House of Sol last year. It was a blast! The lineup was so awesome I danced and sweated the entire time. In my opinion, they came up with an even better lineup. This DJ lineup are native Chicagoans. House of Sol are going to represent Chicago House Experience in a big way. The broadcast of this event will be conducted at http://www.hoschicago.org/ and H2S On-Live at http://www.electronicrhythm.com/ powered by Mixtube.dj. As we come to our last phase of our 1 year Anniversary, we could be more prouder than to be chosen to part of the House of Sol. If you never been out to this event, this is your opportunity. Don’t miss it!! This House Head Has Spoken!!
