  • Wizard World
    Facilitating the fan-delighting collision of comic-book universes and intergalactic heroes, Wizard World organizes Comic Cons and pop-culture conventions across the continent. At each event, stars from the silver screen set down roots in booths across the convention floor, wielding markers for autographs and their photo-op-ready smiles. Past guests have run the gamut from William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, and the cast of AMC?s The Walking Dead. Away from the crowds, stars also participate in talks and Q&A panels as part of the event?s programming. Along with beloved actors, Wizard World?s conventions grant guests a chance to interact with writers and artists as well as partake in activities such as gaming tournaments and costume contests.

  • Andersonville
    A glass of cold sangria in one hand, a plate of food balanced in the other. The only reason to disrupt such a perfect combination might be to dance to the live band performing just a few feet away. That's the basic Midsommarfest formula, and every summer, nearly 50,000 people flock to Andersonville for this celebration of all things local. Going strong for the past half century, the fest takes over Clark Street from Foster to Catalpa with booths for food and crafts as well as five different stages. These showcase eclectic entertainments that truly reflect the neighborhood's charm: not just cover bands (though there are those, too), but a pet parade, Swedish music, dance troupes, and sets from blues, roots, and funk bands. All the fun also helps the neighborhood, and not just because stoplights are powered by laughter; proceeds go to benefit community causes.

  • Oktoberfest in Glendale Heights
    From September 12 to 21, Camera Park?s emerald expanse of grass and wooden gazebos braces itself for a lively celebration of German culture as the third annual Glendale Heights Oktoberfest gets underway. The festival?s spacious tent ensures a full weekend of merriment, whether the sky rains, shines, or finally spills its Big Dipper. As live bands lay down rhythms with their oompahs, waitresses clad in dirndl skirts serve up authentic German cuisine prepared by Chef Wolfgang of Schnitzel Platz Restaurant, in addition to Austrian and German pastries and frosty beers imported from Hofbr?u Brewery in Munich. Aside from the festival?s palate-pleasing foods, revelers can work off hearty meals by dancing from noon to midnight and erupting into a round of applause after inspiring performances by lederhosen-clad accordion players. Youngsters can also meet their daily quotas for fun with a pumpkin patch, pony rides, and huts filled with an array of souvenirs, such as hats, German flags, and apple-juice steins.

  • River Grove School Education Foundation 2012
    Under the Streetlamp pries open America's songbook of radio hits, belting out timeless sing-alongs. After fueling the Chicago run of the Tony Award–winning musical Jersey Boys, the old-school quartet has reconvened on stage, determined to resurrect the sounds of the ‘60s and twirl listeners back to an era of peace, love, and vinyl housepets. Unabashed head-bobbing sweeps through East Leyden High School's auditorium as rock 'n’ roll anthems, doo-wop jingles, and golden oldies soar from the band's vault, courtesy of legendary hitmakers such as The Beatles and The Beach Boys. A seven-piece ensemble backs the harmonized vocals with rollicking piano, crystalline guitar, and horns that burst forth with bombast during the rockers and slow to a dreamy sway for the ballads. The vocalists also regale audiences with whimsical choreography and amusing story banter between the songs. Adding to the evening's feel-good vibes, the River Grove School Education Foundation presents the performance as part of its continuing mission to generate funds for local educational programs.
