This year’s Midsommarfest takes over Clark Street starting at 5 p.m. with a set from DJ Dan Luna. At 7 p.m., local festival fixture Sixteen Candles takes the stage with covers of ’80s acts such as Prince and Duran Duran. Meanwhile, local restaurants will be on hand selling their cuisine. A portion of the festival’s proceeds benefits the Swedish American Museum’s Water Tower Fund in the hopes of returning the iconic gold-and-blue tower—recently removed after a harsh winter—to its former perch above the neighborhood.

Andersonville Midsommarfest

A glass of cold beer 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.
