YIPPIE FEST began in 2017 as an event that continued the performance tradition of the former Abbie Hoffman Died for Our Sins Festival (1989-2016). YIPPIE FEST 2022 comes together for the first time since the pre-pandemic 2019 fest, and features the variety of acts that keep the collective spirit of performance and humanity alive. For a complete and easy-to-navigate schedule, click PERFORMERS.

Frank Carr is the Executive Director of Festival since its inception. The comedy group he co-founded, FAMOUS IN THE FUTURE, performed in every Abbie Hoffman fest and so far every YippieFest. They will appear, along with other comic/performance acts including Michael Bratta, Laura Ann Parry and two STAND-UP showcases, Whoa-Whoa K-nomedy Show (Saturday at Midnight) and Standup Sunday (6pm). Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com will also present local short films at 4:30pm on Saturday.
