Get ready to mark your calendars because Summer 2024 is just around the corner! We’re kicking off Festival Season in Chicago with a bang at the Belmont Sheffield Music Festival, and we’re pumped for what’s in store. This year marks our 39th annual celebration, promising the same incredible lineup of bands, lively street dancing, mouthwatering food, and, of course, plenty of ice-cold brews! But wait, there’s more excitement in store: for the very first time, we’re extending the festival to three jam-packed days instead of two! That’s right, now you can join us on Friday night as well as the entire day on Saturday and Sunday. It’s all about more music, more fun, and soaking up the summer vibes in the heart of Chi-town!

Frequently Asked Questions

The festival is happening rain or shine!

Location: The Belmont Sheffield Music Festival takes place beginnning at the corner of Belmont Ave and Sheffield ave, and extends down to the corner of Sheffield and Roscoe street. An optional $10 donation will be asked upon entry. Your contribution directly supports the festival’s vibrant musical performances and plays a significant role in community beautification efforts. A portion of the proceeds goes towards neighborhood improvement projects, such as enhancing public spaces, creating green areas, and promoting art installations. Your donation helps transform our community into an even more visually appealing and inviting place for residents and visitors to enjoy. By attending the festival and contributing, you actively participate in the ongoing beautification of our neighborhood, making a lasting positive impact on its aesthetic appeal and overall atmosphere.

The BSMF is dog friendly! Bring your pup on a leash so they don’t miss out on the fun.

The festival is conveniently located DIRECTLY off the Belmont L stop! We recommend taking some sort of public transportation, considering some streets are closed off and we are anticipating traffic and difficulty finding parking. The Belmont L stop has red, brown, and purple lines, so it’s extremely accessible from most Chicago neighborhoods!

Food + Merchants

A street festival isn’t complete without some shopping and eating! So many cool vendors this year will be selling original art, jewelry, clothes, sunglasses, and so much more. There are even a few places where you can customize attire!

When it comes to food, we recommend you come hungry. There are so many restaurants on the fest grounds, right outside, and of course, vendors at the fest itself so you can grab and go without worrying about missing a set. With food options like empanadas, pizza, Venezuelan cuisine, funnel cakes and gourmet cupcakes, there are food options for everyone!
