Andersonville Midsommarfest 2018
One of Chicago’s most legendary street festivals and Andersonville’s quintessential yearly celebration, Andersonville Midsommarfest, returns for its 53rd year in 2018. Suggested donation is $10 and all the proceeds benefit the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce. The yearly event, which, according to, will “help kick off the Chicago summer neighborhood street festival season”, gathers enthusiastic Chicagoans for a weekend filled with tangy international food, energetic entertainment, exclusive artisans and vendors, and a family-friendly array of interactive activities. Midsommarfest is one of the most diverse festivals in Chicago. There is really something for everyone at this must-attend festivity - more information on this year's entertainment line-up is coming soon! Born out of Andersonville’s Swedish heritage, Midsommarfest will transport you back to the old-world Swedish traditions. Dance around the Maypole, test flavorful international food and you can experience it all without the use of a passport! Plus, family friendly activities will allow for children of all ages to enjoy a pet parade and face painting, all while appreciating a beautiful June weekend! The money raised at Midsommarfest goes to support programming and events in Andersonville during the rest of the year, including Andersonville Arts Weekend, holiday events, the Sidewalk Sale, and support services to keep incredible local businesses healthy and strong.
