One of Chicago's most eclectic intersections is the launch pad for the unofficial start of the cities’ summer outdoor festival season. Summer festival fun begins Saturday and Sunday, May 24-25, at the famous intersection of Belmont Avenue and Sheffield Street. Presented by the Central Lakeview Merchants, this event – now celebrating its 29th year – is considered to be one of the city's premier music festivals.
The Belmont-Sheffield Music Festival is a colorful, lively, jam-packed event that is a true reflection of this unique, eclectic and densely populated urban neighborhood. With some of the best musical entertainment in Chicago, it attracts young millennials, Generation M’s and weekend hipsters from around the Midwest.
After a long evolution, the Belmont-Music Festival's music lineup has gained national recognition for showcasing the very best of the country’s Tribute Bands.
In addition to music, Belmont Sheffield Music Fest also features a unique mix of fine arts, crafts, fashions and a variety of food and drink.
