About the event

At this time we are booked and are no longer accepting vending applications. It’s back and ready to take over this May! Expect to have a blast at this popular 39th annual street happening on Sheffield Avenue in the heart of the Lakeview neighborhood (and just steps from the Belmont El station). Don’t miss top local tribute bands on the main stage (near Roscoe), great eats, libations (beer and wine) and artisans. Also expect an eclectic “community” entertainment stage near Belmont filled with fun neighborhood music acts, deejays and other performers.
