A list of the best Chicago Street Festivals this summer!
Happy Friday and HAPPY SUMMER, CHICAGO!!!! We’ve waited a long time for warm temps and sunshine and now that they’re finally here, I’m SO ready for street festival season!
Whenever people ask what I love about Chicago, I always talk about the street festivals in the summer. It’s such a great way to explore different neighborhoods, spend time outside, learn about restaurants in the city, and DANCE! New York didn’t have anything like this, so I immediately realized how unique and fun it is that Chicago has so many of these all summer long. It’s seriously the best!
