Northalsted Market Days 2021

Northalsted Market Days is the largest street festival in the Midwest and Chicago’s hottest summer celebration!

The annual Northalsted Market Days is a weekend-long festival celebrating life & community in Chicago’s historic Northalsted/Lakeview district. The 1/2 mile long festival features all-day lineups of live music on 5 stages, 250+ unique vendors, arts, crafts, food and drink, DJs and dancing, sponsor booths, and more!

Founded in 1980, the celebration now spans from Belmont to Addison on North Halsted St. in Chicago’s Northalsted neighborhood – America’s first recognized gay village. In 2019, the city of Chicago went on to recognize the Northalsted rainbow pylons/Legacy Project memorial as a historic landmark, honoring the LGBTQ+ community’s cultural legacy.
