The Windy City Coop Tour is an annual event in September that showcases backyard poultry, eco-yards, and urban livestock across Chicago. During this self-guided tour, hosts open their yards to visitors and share their experience keeping backyard livestock in an urban setting. 

The Windy City Coop Tour provides access to 20+ local examples of a broader nationwide movement towards sustainable yards! Join us to learn about chickens, bees, gardening, rainwater collection, and composting as part of sustainable urban lifestyles and get ideas for starting your own backyard coop. 


When’s the Next Windy City Coop Tour?

September 2021 will be the 11th annual Windy City Coop Tour! Dates and further details will be available on our social media and on the AUA website as they become available.
