About the event
Join us for a potluck-style barbecue on Chicago's scenic Lakefront!
Every year, Shinjinkai members and family descend upon the Lakefront to celebrate our community in the form of an outdoor, bbq-style, potluck. We set up just east of the Belmont Harbor Boat House, which is also adjacent to the Belmont Harbor Archery Range. There is plenty of parking, with restrooms nearby at the Harbor Boat House, (which does not close until 10:00pm) and our picnic area is covered in case of inclement weather. A grill, along with the appropriate utensils and tables, will be available. It's a potluck picnic, so bring a dish! We'll have music, games, beverages, and of course... plenty of food! Whether you come for the community, or the view, rest assured there'll be plenty of fun for all ages.
Friends, family, and pets are welcome!
Directions: Follow the road from Irving Park south along the lakefront, pass the tennis courts, baseball field, and Clock tower until you see the Boat House (it will be on your right). Once parked, walk the dirt trail east towards the Lakefront, from the Boat House/Parking area towards the water and you'll end up directly at the covered pavilion where we'll be.
Driving From the North: Exit Lake Shore Drive (Route 41) at Irving Park Road (Route 19; 4000 North) and turn left under the bridge. Go to the far right lane and follow the road as it curves south (0.6 mile) to the archery range. You will pass through a long parking lot and two stop signs. The range and green Clubhouse will be on the left (east) across from the Harbormaster’s Office. Park in the next lot (next to the harbor) at the southern end of the parking area.
Driving From the South:
Travel on northbound Lake Shore Drive (Route 41) and exit at Recreation Drive (3650 North: just north of Belmont, but south of Irving Park). Immediately turn right (south) at the stop sign and drive 0.2 mile to the archery range on Belmont Harbor Drive. Park in the first parking lot. The range is at the southern end of the lot; you will see a green clubhouse on the left (east) across from the Harbormaster’s Office.
