We know you've been waiting for this all year long, and we have too. SUMMER IN CHICAGO! This city is nothing short of action packed during the warmer months and we're here for it baby!

June 2nd - June 4th Do Division Street Fest on Division Street from Ashland Street to Leavit Street
We're kicking off our summer festival season right in our neighborhood! Spanning ten city blocks, the weekend street shindig from June 2nd to the 4th features vendors and restaurants from across Chicago, two stages with live music from artists such as The Ponys, ADULT., Shannon and the Clams, and WebsterX, as well as a sidewalk sale full of family fun activities including a fashion show!

LOUD AND PROUD
June 25th 48th Annual Chicago Pride Parade on Halsted and Broadway between Montrose and Diversey
Time to dust off your favorite rainbow tee Chicago because Chicago's Pride Parade is bigger and gayer than ever! This year's grand marshall, Lea DeLaria of Orange is the New Black will lead marchers and allies of the LGBTQIA+ community down Broadway and Halsted between Montrose and Diversey. From leather to drag and TONS of glitter, there's something for everyone, queer or not. Our favorite spot to take it all in is right outside of the massive crowds in Boystown on Broadway and Irving Park, come say hi!
