What it is: What started as a small neighborhood affair nine years ago has blossomed into one of the most highly anticipated Chicago festivals of the season. Once again, cutting edge local and national acts will fill out a jam-packed weekend. In addition to the highly regarded live music bill, Wicker Park Fest is a showcase of its diverse neighborhood. Historic yet hip, Chicago’s Wicker Park and Bucktown district offers a variety of lifestyle options (you can be a bro or a hipster or both if you are especially clever), acclaimed restaurants, family activities, a trendy fashion scene and a newly introduced distinctive arts element in 2012, all represented at the fest. We’ll post the music acts when they’re announced, best rest assured they’ll be awesome!
