Chicago Festival Season Kicks Off!
There's no place we'd rather be than Chicago in the summer . . . because Chicago's neighborhood Festivals have arrived and they're all about movin', groovin', eating, drinking, tuning in, and tuning UP!
Take a look at some of our favorite summer neighborhood festivals in June . . . No worries, we'll be back with July ideas soon enough!
JUNE 9 - 12
There's nothing like the blues in Chicago, and there's no better place to enjoy the blues than the Chicago Blues Fest where some of the biggest names in the biz show up to give you the best of what they've got. Millennium Park - don't miss it.
JUNE 11 - JUNE 12
Pay attention art lovers, because the Wells Street Art Fair is BACK and its chock-full of paintings, drawings, sculptures, textiles, jewelry, food, drink, live music, outstanding people watching . . . need we say more?
JUNE 11 - JUNE 12
Looking for an art fair that's a smidge more high brow? Then step next door into the Old Town Art Fair where juried artists line the neighborhood streets of Old Town and transport you someplace really special. There's food and drink here too, and big crowds, but the overall aura is a touch more subdued - and there's lots of shade.
Randolph Street is the place real foodies go when hunger strikes and the Taste of Randolph is your prime opportunity to sample the plethora of good tastes that dot Randolph Street, and be a foodie for a day!. Live bands turn it up a notch and make for a really good time day or night, and a Chicago summer mainstay.
Show your pride at The Northalsted PrideFest featuring live music by headline artists and local favorites, 3 stages, food and drink, 100+ arts/crafts vendors, DJ's and dancing, drag shows, pet parade, sponsored presence, games, giveaways and more. It's a massive celebration of the country's first recognized LGBTQ communities. Anything goes at this proud celebration.
As a cap to PrideFest, the Chicago Pride Parade steps off the curb in Lakeview East to celebrate Pride in all its glorious forms. It's a day of revelry and celebration and one not to be missed!
