    Are there any street fests I'd actually enjoy attending besides Do Division and Wicker Park fest? Does the Goose Island block party count?

    Taste of Randolph usually books good acts and you're surrounded by great food.

    And yes, I count the Goose Island Block Party as a street fest.

    West Fest and The Pilsen Food Truck Social both have their lineup's selected by the Empty Bottle so it's similar to Do Division. Taste of Randolph is usually a solid lineup.

    Taste of Lincoln usually books "bigger" bands as well.

    free food and beer and just a few blocks down the street from west fest

    It's more of a charity thing they do to raise money for suicide prevention. I think it was like Open Mike Eagle and someone else kinda local last year

    I have a friend who manages one of the stores and it's free booze for the donation so as you can imagine I spent the day there
