One of Chicago’s most legendary street festivals and Andersonville’s quintessential yearly celebration, Andersonville Midsommarfest, returned for its 56th year in 2022!
The yearly event, which, according to ChicagoPride, would “help kick off the Chicago summer neighborhood street festival season” gathered enthusiastic Chicagoans for a weekend filled with tangy international food, energetic entertainment, exclusive artisans and vendors, and a family-friendly array of interactive activities. Midsommarfest is one of the most diverse festivals in Chicago. There is really something for everyone at this must-attend festivity.
All the proceeds benefit the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce. The money raised at Midsommarfest goes to support programming and events in Andersonville during the rest of the year, including Andersonville Arts Weekend, holiday events, the Sidewalk Sale, and support services to keep incredible local businesses healthy and strong.
