Logan Square Arts Festival

JUNE 28, 2019 5-10PM

JUNE 29-30 NOON-10PM

The Logan Square Arts Festival is a three-day celebration of the diversity and vitality of Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood. The festival features two stages of live music, visual art, performance art, dance, food, and drinks, in the heart of Logan Square. In 2018 over 30,000 people celebrated the first weekend of the summer on Logan Square, one of the most iconic green spaces in the city of Chicago.

In 2019 the festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary as Logan Square's premier cultural event. Over the last decade, a quarter of a million people have enjoyed the festival and it has raised tens of thousands of dollars for neighborhood non-profits.

Since 2015 the festival has partnered with Logan Square Preservation, a community organization dedicated to the preservation of culturally relevant buildings and open spaces in Logan Square.

Each year the festival features artists of varying disciplines, neighborhood restaurants, and locally produced beer and cocktails. The festival partners with neighborhood art organizations on the presentation of visual art across the festival grounds and the performance of a diverse array of music across two stages.

Saturday June 8, 2019 12PM - 10PM
Sunday June 9, 2019 12PM - 10PM

One of Chicago’s most legendary street festivals and Andersonville’s quintessential yearly celebration, Andersonville Midsommarfest, returns for its 54th year in 2019.

The yearly event, which, according to ChicagoPride, will “help kick off the Chicago summer neighborhood street festival season” will gather enthusiastic Chicagoans for a weekend filled with tangy international food, energetic entertainment, exclusive artisans and vendors, and a family-friendly array of interactive activities. Midsommarfest is one of the most diverse festivals in Chicago. There is really something for everyone at this must-attend festivity.

Born out of Andersonville’s Swedish heritage, Midsommarfest will transport you back to the old-world Swedish traditions. Dance around the Maypole, test flavorful international food and you can experience it all without the use of a passport! Plus, family friendly activities will allow for children of all ages to enjoy a pet parade and face painting, all while appreciating a beautiful June weekend!

Suggested donation is $10 and all the proceeds benefit the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce. The money raised at Midsommarfest goes to support programming and events in Andersonville during the rest of the year, including Andersonville Arts Weekend, holiday events, the Sidewalk Sale, and support services to keep incredible local businesses healthy and strong.
