Summer is almost over, but it’s not too late to go out and experience what Chicago has to offer. We are lucky to have one of the greatest cities right at our finger tips. Unfortunately, I don’t think we take advantage of exploring the different types of entertainment that the city of Chicago gives us. Here are a few of the summer festivals and events that I think are a must for this summer.
Rock Around the Block
Dates: July 7-8
Price: $5 suggested donation
Great food and street vendors add to this overall rock -out festival.
Dates: June 30-July 1
Location: Butler Field, Grant Park
The Gold Coast Art Fair is one of the top 20 art festivals in the nation.
Dates: August 3-5
Date: August 4-5
Not your average festival, Wrigleyville SummerFest features a Kids Zone with interactive games and family-friendly activities during the day in addition to the live music, beer, and savory flavors that Chicagoans know and love.
