Summer Calendar of  Festivals and events: Chicago 2021

They’re back!

It’s looking like the summer of 2021 is going to be the real deal with an exciting line up of summer festivals, concerts and neighborhood blowouts.

Although not everything is back–it looks like we’ll have to wait until 2021 for Jazz fest, Blues Fest, the 57th Street Art Fair, Andersonville Midsommarfest and others we’ve got Lolla, Pitchfork, Riot Fest Ravinia Festival, Milwaukee Summerfest, Navy Pier fireworks and the Naked Bike Ride are back.

Others festival commitments, including the Air and Water Show, are still “up in the air.”

While others have been postponed to later in the season such as the Chicago Pride Parade that will step off in October.

Here’s Show Me Chicago’s annual list of summer festivals for 2021. We will continue to update the list throughout the season. Please let us know if we missed anything.
