Events

It’s all about making connections — connections to local businesses, connections to readers and connections to community.
22nd Century Media - Events, or 22CMEvents, is a product of 22nd Century Media, publisher of 15 weekly hyperlocal community newspapers: The Frankfort Station, The Homer Horizon, The Lockport Legend, The Mokena Messenger, The New Lenox Patriot, The Orland Park Prairie and The Tinley Junction in Chicago’s southwest suburbs; and The Glencoe Anchor, The Glenview Lantern, The Highland Park Landmark, The Lake Forest Leader, The Northbrook Tower, The Wilmette Beacon and The Winnetka Current on Chicago’s North Shore, as well as Malibu Surfside News in Malibu, Calif.
In 2014, we decided to enter the events business, creating community-focused events that not only served our readers and communities but also local businesses. Our publications do unparalleled work connecting with readers through newsprint, but with events, we can offer a face-to-face connection.
We hold several events throughout the year including:
North Shore: Camp Expo (February), North Shore Choice Awards (February-March), Women In Business Awards Luncheon (June and September) and Healthy Living Expo/5K (August)
Southwest: Healthy Living Expo (January), Southwest Choice Awards (January-February), Lady - A Women’s Expo (April) and Ladies Night Out Series (June, August, October and December) 
Malibu: Malibu Choice Awards (August-September)
