This curated community-cultural public sphere exhibition explores and presents Lowrider culture as an original form of American folk and contemporary art.
We proudly announce that the Slow&Low: Chicago Lowrider Festival will return on Saturday, October 15, 2022. Tickets start at $15.
This year's return follows our pre-pandemic festival in September 2018, taking over four city blocks in the Pilsen community, exhibiting more than 250 customized cars, dozens of bicycles, and motorcycles while welcoming more than 15,000 guests. Slow&Low also featured a curated presentation of local entertainment, music, food, and art.
Today, Slow&Low has grown into a community-wide celebration of Lowrider heritage and identity. Unlike a competitive or dealer car show, Slow&Low is a curated exhibition that explores and presents Lowrider culture as an original form of American folk and contemporary art.
This fall, during Hispanic Heritage Month, Slow&Low: Chicago Lowrider Festival will take over 170,000 square feet of exhibition space in Navy Pier's Festival Hall as the largest gathering celebrating Lowrider culture, community, and art in Chicago.
