  • Andersonville
    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.

  • DuPage County Fair
    The DuPage County Fair takes place July 22-26. Tens of thousands of people flock to the DuPage County Fair each summer—in fact, the event drew over 100,000 attendees in 2014 alone. That popularity isn't due to a single event or attraction, but rather to the sum of a multi-day festival showcasing agriculture and celebrating summertime fun as a whole. The Axe Women Loggers of Maine will be competing all five days in Lumberjack shows, and the Willis Clan will be performing on Thursday evening. There will be roving acts, 4-H exhibits, variety of musical entertainment, animal shows, and pig races all included with admission. Saturday the International Pro Rodeo Association will host two sanctioned events. Walking the long line of vendors takes attendees past familiar fair foods, and a craft beer tent with over 40 craft beers. On Sunday there are two demolition derbies. These are just some of the events that make the DuPage County Fair a great destination for families.

  • 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.

  • Texas Tomato Battle
    At each of several one-day festivals held throughout the country, thousands of revelers unite in an epic clash of pulp, beer, and live music. Armed with a cache of 300,000 tomatoes, participants don protective bathing suits and goggles and hurl the fruit at one another during a two-hour battle. Throughout the afternoon, live music and costume contests offer an entertaining respite from the front lines, as bartenders dispense drafts of beer to attendees older than 21, refueling soldiers' morale before they resign to writing goodbye letters to their produce vendors back home. All tomatoes used during the event are past ripe and already fated for disposal, making the battle an efficient means of tossing them before their cursed transformation into singing Muppets.

  • Porky's Rib Fest
    After their inaugural year, the organizers of the Porky?s Rib Fest hoped that their event became an oft-circled event on the calendars of barbecue-loving Chicagoans. If this year?s vendor lineup is any indication, they?re already well on their way. Recruited from both inside and outside of Chicago, the award-winning roster includes vendors with decades of combined grilling experience. Hailing from the Lone Star State, Texas Thunder BBQ is a perennial favorite at rib fests around the country. On the hometown front, cooks from Berwyn?s Chicago BBQ Company sling their signature brand of slow-smoked meats. The lineup even includes an international representative: based out of Sydney, Australia, the meat masters of Aussom Aussie tempt taste buds at home and abroad with unexpected flavors such as fruit-based sauces. Aside from chowing on an international buffet of barbecue, attendees can enjoy 25 different carnival rides along with a continuous stream of live music on two stages. Bands from all over the country perform various music styles including classic rock, country, and blues. See the full music schedule here.
