CHICAGO — Navy Pier proudly welcomes Slow&Low: Chicago Lowrider Festival Saturday, October 15, 2022, from 10 am – 8pm.
This fall, during Hispanic Heritage Month, these custom cars will take over 170,000 square feet of exhibition space in Navy Pier's Festival Hall. This is the largest gathering celebrating Lowrider culture, community, and art in Chicago.
The festival 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.
There will be more than 250 customized cars, dozens of bicycles, and motorcycles. Attendees can enjoy a curated presentation of local entertainment, music, food, and art.
The roots of lowriding trace back to the 1940s when car culture began taking hold across America. This was especially true in southern California, where families began purchasing cars to adapt to the expanding cities of the new, post-war urban landscape. The movement grew across the nation and has a strong presents still in Chicago.
