Get ready to shimmy. Or bop. Or shake. Or simply boogie down to the retro beats at the fourth annual Throwback Music Fest that will again be taking it to the streets of Chicago’s northwest side Gladstone Park neighborhood.

Featuring a groovy roster of acts playing tunes from the ’50s through the ’80s, there’s guaranteed to be memories for every generation. And to top off the weekend festivities there’s also a Saturday morning pet parade and, on Sunday, a vintage car display and a fun Miss Throwback Contest.

Beyond tunes the fest also features plenty of great food, arts/crafts, and activities for kids and families.
