    Events in/around Chicago in September 2018

    Aug 30, 2018

    September welcomes a new season, Fall. So grab those light coats, plaid flannel shirts, a pair of jeans and something pumpkin flavored (coffee, scone, muffin, etc). and go explore Chicago before it gets too cold.

    • August 31-September 2: North Coast Music Festival in the West Loop: Celebrate Labor Day weekend in Union Park at North Coast Music Festival, where EDM once again dominates the lineup.
    • September 7-9: German-American Oktoberfest in Lincoln Square: Grab a plastic stein and munch on a pretzel at this annual Lincoln Square celebration of Deutschland heritage. The street party takes place under two gigantic tents and features plenty of German food, music and dancing.
    • September 8-9: Renegade Craft Fair in Ukrainian Village: Browse and buy prints, pottery, jewelry and other handmade goods from makers near and far, while enjoying food and drinks being peddled by local businesses and vendors.
    • September 14-16: Riot Fest in North Lawndale: It's the social event of the season for anyone with a denim jacket covered in patches hanging in their closet. Riot Fest brings acts like Beck, Blink-182, Alkaline Trio, Blondie, Elvis Costello and rock 'n' roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis to Douglas Park for a three-day carnival of music (there's even a Ferris wheel).
    • September 14-16: Fulton Market Harvest Fest in the West Loop: These Chicago food bigwigs round up dishes from some of the best West Loop restaurants, accompanied by beer, cocktails and cooking demos from some the area's most talented chefs.
    • September 21-22: 312 Block Party at the United Center: Didn't get the invite to your neighborhood block party this summer? No worries—Goose Island is inviting everyone to its annual 312 Block Party, which takes place right in front of its Fulton Street brewery. A $10 donation to a local charity at the gate gets you access to live music, food truck fare and more than 20 different beers, which are only $3 each.

    Looking for something Sports related? Head on over to US Cellular Field for the White Sox or Wrigley Field for the Cubs and catch a game. Who knows you could even catch a fly ball.
