Greektown Chicago will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Greek Independence Day with a virtual parade of photos and a special recorded performance from popular Greek singer Glykeria of the song “Να 'τανε το '21” (Let it be ‘21), which commemorates the start of the Greeks’ fight for independence in March 1821. Greektown’s virtual event also includes a dynamic history of Chicago’s Greek American community, with stories from prominent Chicagoans and archival photos highlighting the city’s Greek Independence Day celebrations and parades over the past 126 years. Additionally, families from across Chicagoland are encouraged to join the virtual celebration by submitting photos and videos of their Greek Independence Day memories, which may be used in a montage during the virtual event.
