Wicker Park Festival?

I happened to notice that this event will be going on during the time we will be in Chicago (late July) . Can anyone tell me what this event is and if would make it a bad time to visit the city? Just wondering if it has any bearing on booking a hotel or prices at that time? Thanks!

Nothing wrong with visiting the city at that time. Chicago has festivals going on all summer long.

No. There is a festival almost every week. This is a small one in a neighborhood 5 miles from downtown. It will not bring anyone into town.

Wicker Park Fest is awesome. It's one of the largest street festivals in Chicago and it's only $5. The line-up always features up and coming bands, whose names should be posted here any day now: http://www.wickerparkfest.com/music/

Thanks for the info everyone! We'll still be coming to Chicago at our scheduled time and may even check out the festival while we're there!

Thanks!!!
