MORE festivals? Yep, you guessed it! August has plenty of fest options for Chicagoans to experience, and we have the only list you need in deciding which to attend. Prepare your weekends… there’s something for everyone!

If you’re already a little lost with all the options, don’t fear! We’ll give you the lowdown on the Chicago neighborhoods that fit what you’re looking for.
As temperatures rise over 80 degrees and humidity percentages make you feel like you’re walking through a sauna, you may find yourself wanting to submerge completely in some cold lake water. No judgment, since we conveniently have Lake Michigan nearby to jump into! Pack up your beach bag and load up on the sunscreen, because a beach weekend in Chicago doesn’t mess around.
Whether you’re someone who likes to read a book on a park bench or a connoisseur of succulents in your apartment, everyone enjoys time amongst the plants. You may live in a city, but now you have an excuse to stop watching Netflix– there’s plenty of greenery for you to Instagram.
Ah, spring and summer in the Chi.

You won’t be disappointed.
