Chicago’s North Side Summerfest 2012 on Lincoln Avenue at Irving

OK, I admit it, I am a Festival Junkie. One of summer’s greatest pleasures is dragging my lawn chair with the cup holder around to different historic neighborhoods in Chicago for street food and live music. I have lost count of how many times I have heard 16 Candles perform at a street festival.

Chicago’s North Side Summerfest 2012 on Lincoln Avenue at Irving is one of my favorites! If you like hot dogs, this is the fest for you! There will be great bands, arts and crafts and a mouth-watering array of  HOT DOGS.

Many of Chicago’s charming neighborhoods have interesting landmark properties with incredible architectural detail. Many of the neighborhoods that host the festivals have been gentrified.  An active Chamber of Commerce and involved residents are willing to go the extra mile to make the event a success.

All around Chicago there are weekend summer festivals with plenty of Vino con Vista opportunities.

I love the  live music and the artsy atmosphere. Last year, The Gap had a food truck with great steak tacos!

There were vendors selling lots of unique art and merchandise.

They will have a Chicago-Style Hot Dog Contest.
