Now in its 45th year, each year approximately 50,000 people gather on Clark Street to enjoy great international food, stellar family activities, lively entertainment on four stages, and over 100 quality artisans showcasing their wares.



Midsommarfest is one of Chicago’s most unique street fairs. Born out of Andersonville's Swedish heritage, Midsommarfest retains its quaint, international flavor. Old-world Swedish traditions, including a festive dance around the Maypole, are incorporated into an unrivaled array of entertainment for families and adults.



A special family area includes face painting, games and a family stage with entertainment such as Nordic Folk dancers, the Barefoot Hawaiian Dancers, a pet parade and much more. The other three stages are filled all day with spirited music, including nationally renowned acts, guaranteed to get the crowd dancing.
The quaint little Swedish "village" of Andersonville features some of Chicago's most intriguing shops and a wonderful array of international eateries. Famous restaurants involved in the past include Reza’s, Andies, Wickstroms Calo, and many more!



The 45th Annual Midsommarfest will take place in the heart of Andersonville on Saturday and Sunday, June 12th & 13th from 11:00 AM until 10:00 PM. Located at 5200 N. Clark Street @ Foster. Admission to the festival is a $5 donation fee.
