Chicago's sweet summer vibe will be in full swing when Taste of Lincoln Avenue, one of the Windy City's most iconic (and pioneering) street fests, returns for its 33rd fun-filled year to the heart of the Lincoln Park/DePaul neighborhood.

Stretching over several city blocks and side streets on the eponymous strip of Lincoln Avenue between Fullerton and Wrightwood, highlights include nearly 20 music acts on two stages, a stand-alone "Kids' Carnival" area, plus plenty of food, libations and arts & crafts.

In total, the fest features more than 60 merchants, artists, community group and food/drink booths. The always-popular Kids' Carnival, held from Noon-6:00 p.m. each afternoon on Altgeld between Lincoln and Halsted (free entrance from Halsted), features inflatables, art activities galore, pony rides, kiddie carnival rides and much more.
