The festival first premiered in 2015, with a series of vibrant performers coming to the West Side of Chicago. This year’s venue is located in the Little Village Community area at the Chicagoland Fairgrounds (2801 S Washtenaw Ave.), an expansive outdoor stadium that’s sure to pack in a crowd of festival goers.
