What it is: The Oakley Festa Pasta Vino, a celebration of Italian Culture, will be held once again in the Heart of Chicago neighborhood. More than 25 thousand people are expected to attend and enjoy the incredible wine, food, restaurants, Florentine market, handcrafted goods and costumed performers that have made the festival a tradition for many Chicago families. Past year’s musical performers have included a tribute to The Rat Pack (note: not to be confused with the Brat Pack – though a Brat Pack tribute band would be awesome).
