Chicago Beach Wedding In The Time Of Covid
Are there any alternatives?
Clark Street Beach is the only beach in Evanston available for weddings. It does require a permit and some restrictions.
The Clark Street Beach is located at Clark Street and Sheridan Road, just south of the Northwestern Campus. It is our biggest beach, which should allow ample room for a wedding. There is off street parking and limited handicap parking near the beach. Clark Street Beach is the only beach available.
When requesting Clark Street Beach please keep in mind the following:
-The swimming beach season is from the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend to the Monday of Memorial
-During the beach season the beach hours are 10:30 am to 7:30 pmo The beach is a public park
Clark Street Beach is available from 6:00 am to dusk.
For now the Chicago beaches and pools will remain closed.
What You’ll Miss
No large weddings, receiving lines cancelled, passed appetizers & buffets not allowed — and maybe dancing if it can be socially distanced.
What You’ll Have
You should probably consider temperature checks, covering faces, extra cleaning, and lots of distance.
Not exactly what you imagined.
Phase four, weddings limited to of 50 people max or 50% of overall capacity, whichever number is smaller.
That doesn’t include event staff, such as photographers, DJs or servers.
You might be rethinking your plans if you don’t want to reduce your wedding to the 50 person limit.
All of our summer ChicagoWeddingDJs clients have postponed until the ability to hold larger gatherings will happen.
We look forward to a day where we can celebrate together. Until then be safe, healthy and stay well.
