"Neighborhood Festivals" Festivals Tip by taylo365

Festivals, Chicago: 8 reviews and 10 photos

Chicago is an extremely neighborhood oriented city with each area possessing a very specific and interesting character. During the summer there are a large number of huge city festivals, i.e. Taste of Chicago, Chicago Blues Festival, etc. but there are also smaller neighborhood festivals where many of the locals go to drink some beer and listen to live music over the summer weekends. These places are a great way to mingle with young Chicago residents and see some of the neighborhoods that the normal tourist wouldn't normally think to venture too.
