Beneficiary: Wrightwood Neighbors Association


One of Chicago's trailblazing warm-weather fests, this iconic and popular summer happening returns for its 31st year to the streets of the city's Lincoln Park/DePaul neighborhood.

Sprawling over several blocks and side streets along Lincoln Avenues between Fullerton and Wrightwood, fest highlights include nearly 30 music acts on three stages and the stand-alone (and wildly popular) "Kids' Carnival" with art activities galore, stage performers, a petting zoo and much more.

Taste of Lincoln also features an abundance of food, libations, nearly 100 neighborhood vendors and the Lill Street Craft Fair that showcases the creativity of two dozen artists.

In addition, the music stage lineup has something for ever musical taste: from acclaimed indie and classic rockers to legendary Chicago blues acts and top local tribute bands who keep visitors partying throughout the weekend.

Beneficiary - Wrightwood Neighbors Association
The Wrightwood Neighbors Association (WNA) is constantly involved in many issues that directly impact life in the community. WNA works with aldermen and City agencies to help provide residents with the services possible, and to make sure that Wrightwood remains a nice place to work, live and play.
