This weekend in Chicago promises to be a "fest"ful one, and here's why -

Millenium Park opens its "fest" season this Saturday and Sunday with the Chicago Gospel Music Festival.  Three stages will be featuring more than 50 performances by such gospel greats as Kathy Taylor, Hezekiah Walker and Love Fellowship Choir, Kenny Lewis and One Voice with JJ Hairston, and many others.  Take a break and stretch your legs by browsing through some art fair offerings before the next performance.

The Lincoln Square neighborhood is hosting its 11th annual German "fest" this weekend with Mayfest Chicago located at 4700 N. Lincoln Avenue.  The usual heaping plates of German food and steins of beer will be available for purchase.  So kickback, listen to some live music while enjoying your meal!

The Roscoe Village neighborhood is hosting its 4th annual June Jam "fest", which marks the end of the school year at Hoyne & Cornelia Avenues (3500 N. Hoyne Avenue) and held partially on the grounds of Audubon School.  Food and drink vendors will be on hand as well as party bands on Saturday (Too White Crew) and Sunday (Sixteen Candles) along with plenty of kids' activities.

The Wicker Park neighborhood's "fest" this weekend is the Do-Division Street Fest and Sidewalk Sale located at 2000 W. Division Street.  On a 10-block stretch of Division Street, you'll find food and beer vendors, DJs, live music, lots of alfresco shopping on hand, and special areas for kids and pets.  The fest extends from Leavitt Street to Damen Avenue, while the sidewalk sale is between Ashland Avenue and Leavitt Street.

Art fair "fests" taking place this weekend are:  Eastside Millennium Art Festival located at Michigan Avenue and Lake Street in the Loop featuring works by 150 juried artists, and the 57th Street Art Fair located at 57th Street and Kenwood Avenue in the Hyde Park neighborhood and billed as the oldest juried art fair in the Midwest!

This Saturday, between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., Cubby Bear Wrigleyville located in the Lakeview neighborhood at 1059 W. Addison Street, will be hosting a kid-friendly benefit at its Wake Up and Boogie Down Family Festival.  This benefit includes food, music, balloon animals, face painting and giveaways.  A great way to spend some quality time with your kids!

Lastly, the next events are not actually "fests" but rather "benefits" for great causes and worth mentioning -

A tour of eight Wrigleyville bars will be hosting a benefit for Children's Memorial Hospital with their Chicago Mustache Bash this Saturday from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. starting at the Rebel Bar & Grill in the Lakeview neighborhood (3462 N. Clark Street).  Besides food and drink specials, prizes will be given to those with the most creative and best real mustaches!  I wonder if this includes women as well?

United Airlines will be hosting a benefit for Lincoln Park Zoo with their United Run for the Zoo this Sunday at 8:00 a.m.  The 5K run or walk, or the 10K run, will benefit the zoo's animals and conservation programs.  Afterwards, top finishers will receive awards.  And at 10:00 a.m. there's a Hawk Hustle for the kids!

And that's why this is a "fest"ful weekend!!!  Do you agree?

P.S.:  Chicago Blackhawks will be hosting the Philadelphia Flyers this Sunday, 7PM, NBC!!
