Taylor Dayne among the headliners for Chicago Pride Fest 2017

Chicago, IL - Northalsted ushers in Pride Month with Chicago Pride Fest 2017 this weekend in Boystown with a full line-up of non-stop entertainment featuring strings, queens and everything in-between.

Two main stages deliver a host of national and local talent. Well Strung brings the strings with their fuse of classic music meets pop blend, while Taylor Dayne delivers her iconic hits and local legends 16 Candles go retro. The DJ stage at Waveland pumps with dance ready beats, while the best divas in the business strut their stuff on the Kit Kat Runway.

The annual Chicago Pride Fest takes place on June 17-18, one weekend before the annual Chicago Pride Parade. It runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. down North Halsted Street from Addison to Grace. A $10 suggested donation is requested at the entrance.
