Summer festivals: July 2013 festival calendar for events in Chicago
Taste of Chicago, Wicker Park Fest, Wavefront Music Festival and more of the best summer festivals in Chicago this July.
The grandaddy of Chicago summer festivals, that feeding frenzy known as the Taste of Chicago, adds food trucks to its lineup of vendors. July also has us pumped for the Chosen Few Old School Reunion Picnic, which brings together some of Chicago house music's progenitors, including DJs Jesse Saunders, Tony Hatchett and Wayne Williams. It's the kind of event that would excite Justice, the electronic duo who'll get behind the decks for a DJ set at the Wavefront Music Festival. Union Park is sure to go crazy for R. Kelly's Pitchfork Music Festival performance. Will the hometown superstar make the ticketless masses believe they can fly...over the fest's fence? This month also offers Naperville Ribfest and Milwaukee Summerfest—good reasons to get outta Dodge.
