Festivals and Events in Chicago

Chicago is a city that loves celebration – so come on over and take part in their festivities – whether they are street celebrations or citywide ones, they are fun and very happening especially between June and September.

The Chicago Blues Festival is a great event and people come in from all over to hear jazz performers give mind blowing performances. Held in June for 4 music-filled days in Grant Park, this is a must attend festival – you will love it!

The Chicago Gospel Fest held early June is also a popular event and brings joy to the soul!

Ever seen a river turn green? On St Patrick’s Day, green is the colour of the day! The river is dyed green – no kidding, and the bagpipes are brought out and shamrock festoons the streets. Beer is in full flow and merriment fills the air.

The Taste of Chicago is a feast for the palate and is the world’s largest food festival. Held ten for ten days before the 4th of July, the restaurants of Chicago put up stalls at Grant park and dish up the most delicious fare ever – ranging from the deep dish pizzas to the ubiquitous sausage hotdog to exotic Asian and Indian fare – all is available for the gourmand! Besides the mouthwatering food, there are musical shows and plays put up to entertain the visitor. Make it a point to visit!

End November sees the Magnificent Mile lights festival and this heralds the beginning of the Christmas season. On the last day Michigan Avenue is brightly lit up with a million lights and festivity fills the air – entertainers put up shows and children have a great time.
