A city that dyes its river green, hosts three Irish parades and celebrates St. Patrick’s Day like no other clearly is committed to showcasing its strong Irish influence. No wonder we are the “GREENest City in the World.”

In 2015 ShamROCK Chicago will protect Chicago’s title as the GREENest City in the World with “Five Days of GREENing Chicago.” From Friday, March 13th through Tuesday, March 17th, iconic buildings, monuments and streets in the City of Chicago will light up GREEN. We will also project a video celebration of the GREENing Project and individual Chicago participants onto the Block Thirty Seven building, which can be viewed nightly from 7:00-8:00pm from State Street just outside Macy’s.
