Tired of staring out the window at your 9-5 job seeing a sunny, cloudless sky, wishing you were able to enjoy it? As arguably the best month of the year in Chicago, July has many events that all Chicagoans should experience. So, beat your head against your desk no more, because Chicago has a plethora of events scheduled for the rest of July.
Sheffield Garden Walk
The Sheffield Neighborhood Association is hosting the 42nd Annual Sheffield Garden walk on July 17 & 18. The festival features self guided tours of over 90 gardens along with architectural tours, live entertainment and some of the best food, drink, and activities that the city has to offer. Entertainment like Cowboy Mouth will be performing on Saturday night while Rusted Root will be performing on Sunday. Food Vendors such as The Abbey Pub & Restaurant, Robinson's # 1 Ribs, and Bacinos will be supplying the festival along with beverage vendors like McGee's Tavern. Donations are $7 amd $10 when arriving after 3pm.
Windy City Ribfest
The 2nd Annual Windy City Ribfest is taking place on July 16-18 at Lawrence and Broadway in Uptown. Though this is only the second time Windy City Ribfest is being put on for the public, the first festival definitely made a name for itself. Ribbers from Chicago and the rest of the Midwest to both coasts of the country come to Windy City Ribfest to show the public how well they can cook their ribs. Join the festival for great food, drinks, and live entertainment. While the event is free, a suggested donation of $5 is made to the event.
