Time Out says

Whirling dervishes, folk dancing and Turkish coffee take over Daley Plaza during the annual Chicago Turkish Festival. If all you know is that it's Istanbul and not Constantinople, head on over to this event to eat baklava and orchid ice cream, or shop for jewelry and hand-crafted good. Stick around to sample some beverages in the beer and wine garden before you take in one of the event's colorful fashion shows.
