Thank you to our sponsors :

Neighborhood street festivals, art shows, outdoor concerts – including Lollapalooza and the Taste of Chicago – return this summer as the Chicago area reopens.

As with most things this year, the coronavirus pandemic has left its mark on summer events: some have been postponed until later in the season, others canceled altogether for 2021; others finalize dates and details. We will keep this list updated as more information becomes available.

Learn more about each event from the organizers themselves by clicking on the links below.
