The arrival of September may signal that the end of summer in Chicago is drawing near, but we still have a few more weeks of warm weather to enjoy. When you're not frequenting beer gardens and rooftop bars before they close for the season, you can shop for handmade goods at the Renegade Craft Fair, indulge in musical nostalgia at Riot Fest and sample dishes from some of the city's hottest chefs at Chicago Gourmet. Plus, you'll find a long list of Oktoberfest celebrations, no less than two different jazz festivals and concerts from the likes of Chance the Rapper, Lizzo, The Black Keys and more. Find more of the best things to do in Chicago this month with the help or our September events calendar.
