One of the best things about Chicago Summers are the street festivals! The streets close off to traffic, and allow dancing, eating, and drinking to take place instead. The Belmont Sheffield Music Festival is one of the FIRST events to kick off festival season. Like always, we have a great lineup of bands playing on two stages this year. Meet the bands who will be playing, and cheers to festies with your besties.
