Wicker Park may be overrun with chain restaurants and gigantic shoe stores, but the neighborhood still clears out Milwaukee Avenue for a street celebration each summer. The main attraction of the annual fest is the Pitchfork-quality music lineup, which features synth-pop act Porches, punk rockers Against Me!, stoner metal act Red Fang and singer-songwriter Ezra Furman. You'll also find plenty of delicious food, sales at local shops and twentysomethings watching the festivities from rooftops and balconies.

Wicker Park Fest is easily one of the best street festivals in the city, with multiple live music stages (playing actually great music), tons of beer and tons of cool local crafts and art to buy.
