kids pop up art show

I want to book your space for my daughter's Pop up art show. A couple questions...1. What is the bathroom situation? 2. We want to hang a bunch of paintings in a gallery style - Are the walls already white? Can we put a bunch of nails in them? Do we patch them up, or do you? 3. Is there a "backstage" area to stow our tools, etc. 4. What is the parking situation? 5. Can we move the furniture? 6. Can we stick things to the window?

Having a Pop-Up in Chicago

Chicago is a lovely place to host Pop-Ups. With 80+ spaces available for rent in neighborhoods across the city, you can find just the space you imagined at your budget.

Since planning Pop-Ups is different in every city, here are a few things to keep in mind as you go:

Having a Pop-Up in Chicago costs an average of $186 per hour for the venue. You can find smaller spaces (19 people or less) for closer to $169 and larger spaces (77 or more) run about $491 per hour.

Most Pop-Ups get started between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. and run 5 hours in length. pop up retail spaces in Chicago tend to run slightly larger than average with 48 attendees.

You can find just about any type of space in Chicago, but the most popular for Pop-Ups are restaurants and galleries. We’d guess there are a few of both in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, seeing that it’s the reigning hot-spot for pop up retail spaces.

Chicago Peerspace hosts have welcomed 47800+ people into their pop up retail spaces with an average review of 5.0 stars across 614 reviewers. 99% of guests said they would book again.
