Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce enlisted Big Buzz Idea Group to launch its Square Roots street festival, a unique event it hosts in partnership with the Old Town School of Folk Music. Throughout the year-long process, the Big Buzz team planned and executed the large-scale event, managed relationships, and kept two different organizations on track and moving in the same direction.
When the Chamber of Commerce started to see the impact Big Buzz had on its bottom line, the executive director looked to expand their relationship. The organization’s Apple Fest event had grown to the point they could no longer manage it in-house—and they wanted to continue growing it. Big Buzz took on the contracts, logistics, and all the behind-the-scenes while the organization worked on recruiting vendors.
