Whether or not one has a green thumb, the iconic Sheffield Music Fest & Garden Walk, celebrating its 50th year in 2018, is inspirational, dreamy and motivational. It’s a unique way to savor a summer weekend in the city! There’s also a fantastic music lineup on two stages.

More than 80 of the neighborhood’s lush residential gardens will again be open for the public to explore. There are both self-guided garden tours, and guided architecture tours. Visitors are always amazed at the creativity of urban green spaces on splendid display.

Presented by the Sheffield Neighbors Association, the weekend also includes food, and plenty of nifty afternoon activities for kids and families.

Another exciting component of Sheffield Music Festival & Garden Walk is its partnering with the sixth annual Chicago Craft Beer Festival. This stand-alone microbrew fest will be held in tandem with the Garden Walk throughout the weekend and definitely enhances the crowds.
