Welcome the Festival Season with Chicago Mayfest


Bands, drinks, neighborhood eats, and good times are back with Chicago Mayfest.

Kick off the summer street festivals with Chicago Mayfest in Lakeview. This three-day festival celebrates its 21st birthday. and is always a good party that gets you outdoors with a delicious plate of food and a refreshing drink in your hand.

The cover bands are always great to catch as they let you put your arm around a friend with a beer in hand and belt out songs as if you were on stage. Whether it be the hilarious Rod Tuffcurls and The Bench Press, the always dance-inducing Libido Funk Circus, or the country styles of Suburban Cowboys.

Families will enjoy Chicago Kids Day filled with learning opportunities and a lot of fun. The parents will get some great health tips at the health and posture screenings. In addition, enjoy Kid Zumba, arts and crafts, Kiddie Boot Camp, giveaways, prize drawings, and healthy foods.

Chicago Mayfest runs May 20 – 22 at 3100 N. Ashland Ave. Admission is $10. For more information visit starevents.com/festivals/mayfest-2.
