Wicked Fun: Wicker Park Festival

By: Natasha Roman

Let the neighborhood partying begin, Wicker Park Festival starts this Saturday! On north Milwaukee Avenue (between North Avenue and Wood Street) the two-day fest will feature performances from over twenty different indie music groups, some of the tastiest foods from local eateries, arts, handcrafts, and family activities.

Wicker Park Fest is a celebration of the "uniqueness of one of Chicago's vibrant and eclectic city neighborhoods," according to wickerparkbucktown.com . Attracting over 25,000 music lovers and voted one of the best neighborhood festivals by the Chicago Tribune, according to the article, this is one festival that guarantees fun.

There is a five dollar donation at the gates and the fest runs from noon to 10pm on Saturday and Sunday. There will be complimentary bike valet as well. To see the line up for both days check out their website, wickerparkbucktown.com.

The fest is still one day away and Chicagoers are already screaming with excitement!
