Summerfest 2021 – June 26th

We are hoping against all hope that we can proceed with our annual Summerfest event in the tradition we’re used to – in person and open to the public! With that in mind, we are planning our summer festival for Saturday, June 26, 2021. The theme will be “Saturday in the Park,” featuring a great Chicago cover band and all the food, fun and festivities we’ve missed so much. Stay tuned for further details.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the coronavirus, Summerfest 2021 is contingent upon permission from the city of Chicago.
