Festival Season is Upon Us

May 18, 2013 in I Adore What I Love
Summer in Chicago is like non-other.  After the cooped-up, bitter cold, windy months of winter, everyone just wants to be outside!  Whether that’s laying out at North Avenue Beach, running along Lake Shore Drive, or walking on Michigan Avenue and perusing the store windows, everyone has something to think about that gets them through the months of December through April.Another favorite summer activity that many of us Chicagoans relish in taking part of are the infamous Chi-town weekend festivals!  There are so many fun, interesting festivals to go to and each offers something unique, different, and exciting.A few that I’m a big fan of are the Taste of River North (which basically takes place right outside my door), the Old Town Art Fair, Summer on Southport, Roscoe Village Burger Fest, and the Sheffield Garden Walk!  Plus, some friends and my hubby and I already have tickets to year 1 of the Windy City Smokeout Festival in River North and we couldn’t be more pumped to try some damn good BBQ from the best of the best barbeque restos in the country!
Most of these festivals focus on a combination of food and drink, art, music, and jewelry.
Each one is always entertaining and always a blast!Check out Metromix’s 2013 Chicago Festival Calendar HERE.Have fun and happy weekend!
