Looking for a real Chicago street happening this summer? You’d be hard-pressed to beat the annual party that is Jeff Fest. Back for its 18th year in 2017, it’s held in the northwest side’s cozy Jefferson Park neighborhood and features plenty of tasty food and jammin’ music as well as arts/crafts and kid-friendly activities including bounce houses, face painting, pony rides and more!

This fun fest is one of Chicago’s most quintessential warm weather celebrations. It brings together visitors of all ages from both within and outside the friendly Jefferson Park ‘hood that’s served by a busy El stop on the CTA’s Blue Line smack dab between the Loop and O’Hare Airport.
