YippieFest premiered in 2017, taking on the spirit of the Mary-Arrchie Theater’s Abbie Hoffman Festival, which began in 1989. The live theater version is three days of 24/7 performances, celebrating the best in Chicago stage, music and comedy. YippieFest had to go virtual last year, as the rest of the world did during the pandemic, and following Chicago protocol and the uncertainty in the whole community, chose again to do one spectacular night of online TV entertainment on Sunday, September 26th.
