Midsommarfest 2017 Entertainment Announced

Andersonville’s 2017 Midsommarfest entertainment schedule has been announced. The event, which (unofficially) kicks off this year’s Chicago festival season, takes place on June 9-11 along Clark St. from Foster to Catalpa.

The fest showcases Swedish tradition (such as dancing around the Maypole) as well as the neighborhood’s diverse population. This year expect a wide array of International food, eclectic music and lively drag shows. The event also has many activities for children such as bouncy slides and face painting.

According to the event’s producer, “the suggested donation is $10 and all the proceeds benefit the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce. The money raised at Midsommarfest goes to support programming and events in Andersonville during the rest of the year, including Andersonville Arts Weekend, holiday events, the Sidewalk Sale, and support services to keep incredible local businesses healthy and strong.”
