2022 Chicago Pride Fest: June 18 & 19 in the Northalsted neighborhood

Indie-pop band The Aces grace the Chicago Pride Fest stage on Saturday, June 18.  

The four-piece girl band - comprised of lead singer Cristal Ramirez, her sister and drummer Alisa Ramirez, bassist McKenna Petty and guitarist Katie Henderson - are all friends since grade school.

The Utah-raised group are a perfect blend of pop, soul and old school RnB. Their music explores growing up and falling in love in the 21st century with candid honesty and endearing relatability.

The Aces perform the North Stage (Halsted & Grace) at 8:45 p.m. on Saturday, June 18.

Chicago Pride Fest, which is organized by the Northalsted Business Alliance, runs Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on N. Halsted St. from Addison to Grace in Chicago’s Northalsted neighborhood. 

A $15 suggested donation is recommended. Donations support local nonprofits and fund community projects like the Chicago Pride Crosswalks.
