Summer festivals: August 2013 festival calendar for events in Chicago
Lollapalooza, Northalsted Market Days, Chicago Air & Water Show and more of the best summer festivals in Chicago this August.
Summer festivals: Lollapalooza takes over Grant Park August 2–4.
Last summer, a rainstorm made Grant Park a muddy mess during Lollapalooza. This time around, we're hoping for a better forecast to kick off August. Look beyond perennial festival favorites Northalsted Market Days and the Air & Water Show, and you'll spot some unassuming fests that promise just as much fun: Chicago Korean Festival (traditional Korean wrestling, anyone?), the youth-run We Are Hip-Hop Festival, and the Slow and Low Community Lowrider Festival's automotive eye candy.
