Party hard! Or, at the very least, get down to great tunes, tasty foods, family fun and more at the 18th annual summer happening that is Jeff Fest (aka Jefferson Park Arts & Music Festival).

Held in idyllic (and popular) Jefferson Memorial Park just west of the intersection of Milwaukee and Lawrence Avenues, Jeff Fest is a proud tradition in one of Chicago’s most friendly communities.

Beyond music and food, the Kids’ Zone area on the north side of the park features a ton of cool activities for families. It’s also where one will find the fest’s groovin’ “Community Stage” with eclectic acts ranging from Polynesian dancers and Irish cloggers to local bands and more.

There are also arts & craft vendors, plus ticketed wine tastings that make for relaxing weekend afternoons in one of Chicago’s coziest neighborhoods.
