Celebrate Spring in Chicago with these Free Events

With the warm weather approaching us, we are excited to share these fun events taking place throughout the month of May – did we mention they are free?

Be sure to take advantage of Chicago’s beautiful spring and summer weather, the abundance of shopping and nightlife opportunities, and of course, our beautiful lake front.

Below are a few of our favorite free events taking place throughout the month.

Grab your family and head to Lincoln Park for a day full of sunshine and smiles – and kites! The best part of the event is that if you don’t have a kite, free ones will be provided at the event.

Saturday May 13 and Sunday May 14 – Renegade Craft Fair – West Side

This massive fair is perfect for serious crafters to bond for their love of handmade art. The event will be taking place outdoors and is a perfect place to roam around and admire the art – and hopefully to take home a gift for yourself!

Saturday May 27 – Memorial Day Parade – Downtown Chicago
