Watch President and Mrs. Obama’s exciting announcement, including their reflections on what Chicago means to them.

Our entire road to groundbreaking has been building towards this moment. While we won’t be able to gather in person this fall, we are excited to connect virtually so we can celebrate Chicago and everyone who has helped bring the Obama Presidential Center to the South Side.


Together, we’re one step closer to creating a new destination to move visitors from hope to action, breathing new life into historic Jackson Park, and delivering amenities and economic benefits to the community the Obamas called home. 


We hope you’ll mark your calendars and stay tuned for ways you can participate online!
