What it is: As you might guess about a festival held in Chicago’s Little Italy neighborhood – the Taylor Street Festa Italiana is a celebration of all things Italian. Streets already lined with legendary Italian restaurants will now also feature booths, outdoor cafes, authentic goods, Children’s activities, fantastic bands and cultural exhibits. Oh, and a wine garden. AND, the bands are gonna be performing tributes to Italian legends like The Rat Pack, the Three Tenors, the Four Seasons and the oft forgotten Bon Jovi. Yup, it’s gonna be awesome.
