Let’s Weekend!

Give yourself a pat on the back and an extra shot of espresso for making it to Friday. This weekend is nothing short of exhilarating. It’s Market Days Weekend, AND Bruce Springsteen and P!NK are playing at Wrigley Field (not at the same time, although that would be epic.) There are also some low-key events going around town if you want to keep it more relaxed. Read on to how to tackle the weekend in LVE!

Market Days

Market Days Chicago has long held the reputation of being one of the most captivating street festivals in the Midwest. With each passing year, it brings together an awe-inspiring tapestry of individuals, each with their unique stories and backgrounds, to embrace and cherish the very essence of Chicago’s bustling spirit. Set amidst the heart of Northalsted, Chicago’s historic LGBTQ+ neighborhood, Market Days has flourished over the years to become a captivating extravaganza that transcends boundaries and fosters an all-inclusive atmosphere. Beyond the rainbow banners and shimmering decorations, this year’s Market Days promises an unparalleled celebration of diversity, love, and acceptance.

The Northalsted Business Alliance always books a stellar lineup. This year’s headliners include Betty Who, Shea Coulee, Drama, Pussy Riot, Cupcakke, Kylie Sonique Love, and Crystal Waters. Visit the official Market Days Website for the full schedule!
