Lincoln Park Festivals and Events

Any time of year you can find plenty to do in Lincoln Park and with Chicago notorious for its special events and festivals scene, Lincoln Park certainly doesn’t disappoint. During the summer, your weekends might be overflowing with, “what to do next” between music, art, beer and food festivals, there is always something going on. While January may bring on the winter blues, Lincoln Park doesn’t lay off the fun, even during the winter. Zoo Lights brightens the dark night skies along the lakefront every holiday season, Savor Lincoln Park warms up your belly each January and, of course, Choose Chicago’s annual Restaurant Week caters to everyone’s palate with prix fixe lunch and dinner menus at a dozen or so participating restaurants in Lincoln Park. The Lincoln Park neighborhood is where local organizations, ample open space, active local residents and a thirst for a good time come together for memorable nights year round.
