Como LGBTQ pride event

The Como Community Council will host the annual Como Homo Pride event at the Como Pavilion from noon to 4 p.m. June 25.

Everyone is invited to this free event! There will be at least one activity to help out with socialization and an activity or two for the kids!

For the past three years, the Como Community Council has hosted the Como Homo Pride event at the Como Pavilion Lakeside. While the Council is more than happy to help organize the event, it is always looking for LGBTQ+ neighbors who want to plan events, pageants, community building activities and food.

Contact organizer@district10comopark.org if you’re interested. Watch for updates at district10comopark.org/ComoHomo.

Como Park Annual Ice Cream Social – July 14, 5:30-8 p.m.

Every year, the District 10 Neighborhood Relations Committee plans its ice cream social, typically featuring free ice cream, live music, meet-and-greets with neighborhood organizations and activities for children and families.

The event is held at the Historic Streetcar Station in Como Park, 1224 N. Lexington Parkway. Because parking is limited, organizers encourage community members to walk, bike, roll, car-pool or take public transportation.

This event is still being planned. If you’re interested in helping plan or volunteering at this event you can fill out a volunteer interest form, come to our Neighborhood Relations Committee meetings (first Tuesdays), or reach out to organizer@district10comopark.org.
