- 48th Annual Midsommarfest
- 06.07.2013 - 06.09.2013
- Andersonville - Chicago
Midsommarfest is Andersonville's annual summer street festival, now entering its 48th year. Each year, nearly 50,000 people throng Clark Street from Foster to Catalpa for two days of music, dancing, kids' entertainment, and delicious food. Vendors from around the region sell their wares to passers-by, while ethnic dance troupes and cutting-edge bands keep the party going.
The 48th annual Midsommarfest street festival will kick off on Friday evening, June 7th! This opening night celebration will take place on Clark Street between Balmoral and Catalpa Avenues beginning at 5:00 pm, and will also feature food from some of your favorite local restaurants and of course cold beer and sangria.
Besides being a first for our beloved neighborhood festival, this Friday night event will also benefit the Andersonville Development Corporation and their work to create a more sustainable business district – socially, economically and environmentally. Through their community focused mission, ADC manages business attraction and retention, small business technical assistance, market research and eco-Andersonville events and activities.
We look forward to kicking off the summer in Andersonville a day early this year, and we look forward to continuing to celebrate our great neighborhood with you!
We ask a $10 suggested donation for entry into the festival (kids under 12 and seniors over 65 are free).
