Every year I look forward to the Northalsted Market Days Festival, a two day street-fair that holds the record for largest in the midwest. Market Days is a fun weekend that attracts over 300,000 people and features over 400 artists, restaurants and performers.
The crazy and eclectic Boystown strip of Lakeview hosts Market Days and it’s the perfect place to showcase the vibrancy and friendliness of this event. Always with an awesome musical line-up, this year’s headliners are the Grammy-nominated vocal group Wilson Phillips, Erasures Andy Bell, tribute band Journey Unauthorized and Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter.
Other fun acts during the festival include Estonian sensation Kerli (you have to check her out), 70’s heart-throb David Cassidy (Marsha Brady, where are you?!) and… Aaron Carter (13 year old Shane is freaking. Out. Right. Now.)
“From the tried and true to the zany and unique, the artisans (as well as food offerings) at the fest promise something for every taste!”
