Things are heating up this weekend in Chicago and I’m not talking about the weather!

Returning for its 10th year, Lollapalooza brings its cultural experience back to Grant Park (337 E. Randolph St.) in The Loop this weekend from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. with more than 100 bands and musicians for a rockin’ 3-day music festival! But besides music, Lolla also offers some of the most delicious festival food, drinks and sweets from Chicago’s favorite eateries at its Chow Town, while the Lolla Farmers Market offers the best locally-sourced festival fare located across from Chow Town on the lush green grass of Grant Park, along with Green Street where a variety of vendors sell environmentally responsible goods such as art, craft items and apparel. And, of course, the ever popular Kidzapalooza offering families an opportunity to catch some family-friendly music on its own stage along with arts & crafts, various activities such as creating their own music and more!! Don’t forget to check out the “after shows” where more than 40 artists will perform at various neighborhood venues throughout the City! Lolla is by far the grandest stage for music legends from across the globe!!

The Southern Hemisphere will be heating things up as well with the following neighborhood festivals focusing on the Latino culture –

Fiesta Del Sol returns for its 43rd year to the Pilsen neighborhood at 1400 W. Cermak Rd. (Loomis St. and Cermak Rd.) on Saturday (11:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m.) and Sunday (11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m.). This year’s theme, “A Dream for All” (“Un Sueño Para Todos”) will feature authentic cuisine from a variety of countries, provide a huge lineup of entertainment and music, offer an Art & Culture Pavilion where you can browse the work of local artists in all mediums and even engage with the artists themselves, and the Children’s Area providing read out-loud sessions, book giveaways, games and other fun activities! Definitely the largest Latino festival in the Midwest!!

Taste of Latin America returns for its 3rd year to the Logan Square neighborhood at 3600 W. Armitage Ave. (Armitage and Central Park Aves.) on Saturday (11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m.) and Sunday (11:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.). This gala celebration of all things Central and South American features eclectic & exotic cuisine from nearly a dozen Latin American countries where you’ll have the culinary experience of a lifetime, provide an eclectic world music lineup, offer arts & crafts, cooking demonstrations and much more! Definitely showcases Latin culture and a rich multi-country heritage!!

Returning for its 4th year, Edge Fest returns to the Edgewater neighborhood at 5930 N. Broadway St. (Broadway St. and Thorndale Ave.) on Saturday (12:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m.) and Sunday (12:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.). Taking over the lakefront in celebration of all things Edgewater, Edge Fest features delicious cuisines in this exclusive neighborhood provided by local restaurants, provides two stages of music by popular acts from a variety of musical styles as well as a special karaoke stage where you can woo the crowd, and offers much more such as a dog costume contest and “DockDogs,” a traveling aquatics dog competition new this year! The Chicago Reader labels this one of the top festival picks for August and a can’t miss event!!
