Market Days returns Aug. 6 - 8 with Trixie Mattel, Todrick Hall, Greyson Chance and more

The 39th annual Northalsted Market Days returns this weekend - Aug. 6 - 8 - with headliners Trixie Mattel, Todrick Hall, Greyson Chance, Lisa Lisa, CeCe Peniston and Jody Watley.

Market Days - along with Chicago Pride Fest and the Chicago Pride Parade - were canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

‚ÄúThis will be a very special edition of Northalsted Market Days," said Northalsted Business Alliance Vice-President and festival organizer Mark Liberson. "We've all endured incredible challenges through the pandemic. Thanks to continuing vaccinations, we'll be able to celebrate Market Days as a community once again."

Also on the bill is the Fierce Project, a collaboration between Ultra Naté & Pose star Angelica Ross featuring Mila Jam; Ty Herndon, Steve Grand, Inaya Day and international DJs Alex Acosta, Nina Flowers, Danny Verde, Joe Pacheco, Cindel, Deanne and Alexander.

The street festival, organized by the Northalsted Business Alliance, draws nearly 100,000 people to the Northalsted neighborhood each year.

"We can't wait to welcome locals and visitors alike to join us for an unforgettable three-day weekend," added Liberson.

A $15 recommended donation for entry helps cover festival costs, support local charities, and fund community programming.
