Expect plenty of non-stop fun. And while you’re at it, say hello to the unofficial start of Chicago’s summer street fest season!
Belmont-Sheffield Music Fest is one of the first of scores of Windy City warm weather fests. It’s a ramping up to summer which (officially) begins on June 21. This popular Memorial Day weekend party takes place on Sheffield Avenue in the bustling Lakeview neighborhood just steps from the Belmont El station.
Top local tribute bands on the main stage (near Roscoe), great eats, libations (beer and wine), artisans and a groovin’ second stage featuring entertainment booked by neighborhood venues are on tap for this iconic 35th annual happening.
The fest’s second (aka ‘community’) stage, located on Sheffield at Belmont, will showcase an eclectic entertainment mix that includes deejay sets, karaoke and other nifty local acts and performances.
