Full Moon Fever: Foster Beach Jam Celebrates Lunar Cycle


Full moon fans will be out in force on Foster Beach Thursday night, joining various celebrations of the one night a week when our orbiting satellite is on full display.

Dubbed the Full Moon Fire Jam, the event features safe public displays of fire dancing and music, held monthly from May to October. The next “jam” is Thursday, July 26 from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The fire jam is organized by the Full Moon Jam Foundation, a volunteer-driven organization that launched in 2004. It is fully permitted by the city, and part of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Night Out in the Parks program, which brings over 1,200 events to Chicago this summer.

Foundation volunteers supervise the event so that drummers and performers remain safe, according to the organization’s website. You can find more information here.
