Where are the summer carnivals?

Hi all. I've searched and searched the internet but am unable to find info on where the carnivals are in the chicagoland area. They ususally set up in the same spots every year but where are those spots? anyone know or know how I could get info. South Suburbs is preferred area but not limited to the area. Thanks

It depends if you are looking for carnivals or street fests.. do you have kids?

They have a huge list of street fests etc on the City of Chicago website I believe..

I have never seen a list of local carnivals..

When will you be in town??

www.metromix.com & www.explorechicago.org/specialevents are both good resources for fests in the city of chicago, but try this for suburban fests:
