One of my favorite things about summer in Chicago are all of the neighborhood festivals. From art to music to food, the types of festivals are endless and are a great way to explore new neighborhoods. From May through September, you can count on there being at least two or three different festivals happening around the city each weekend.
Here is a list of some of my favorite ones:
Do Division Street Fest & Sidewalk Sale – May 29-31 in West Town
Ribfest – June 12-14 in Northcenter
Wells Street Art Festival – June 13-14 in Old Town
Taste of Randolph – June 19-21 in West Loop
Windy City Smokeout – July 10-12 in River West
Roscoe Village Burger Fest – July 11-12 in Roscoe Village
Taste of River North – July 17-19 in River North
Taste of Lincoln Avenue – July 25-26 in Lincoln Park
Lakeview Taco Fest – September 19-20 in Lakeview
Oktoberfest – September 25-27 in Lakeview
