Chicago Festivals – Illinois

Your festival event guide for the Chicago, Illinois Area, including Cook, DuPage, Lake and Will Counties.

Welcome to a comprehensive festival listing page for Chicago, Illinois and the greater area. Once area festivals are confirmed on the main Illinois Festival Guide, they are copied over to this page to make it easier to plan your weekend festival adventures. Please keep in mind that you should not see area festivals that have been canceled or have not yet been confirmed.

Festivals listed here include music festivals, art festivals, food festivals, town festivals, church festivals, cultural festivals and more, but they do not include craft shows, machinery shows, bazaars, county fairs and some other events. Feel free to contact me if you have a question about your event.
