After months of snow, wind, and rain, it’s finally time to get out and take advantage of all that Chicago has to offer. Kick off your summer with the help of our June events video.

Several events highlighted include the Chicago Blues Festival and the Chicago Food Truck Festival.

One of our favorites is the Gold Coast Art Fair. Often referred to as the “Granddaddy of American Art Festivals,” the fair showcases the work of 300 artists in Grant Park. Live demos and speed-painting take place throughout the weekend.
