When: Sat., Aug. 25 and Sun., Aug. 26 2012
Stay shady in a good way at the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival. The giant beech, maple, and oak trees that live in Grant Park create just enough shade to keep everyone at the festival comfortably cool. Featuring a bountiful artists market, several stages for live music, and a diverse mix of fair food (hot dogs, curly fries, etc.), and local food trucks, the Shade Festival is the culmination of everything great about summertime in a city of trees.
