Andersonville Midsommarfest Starting Tomorrow Evening

June 6th, 2013 · No Comments · Uncategorized

While this isn’t exactly downtown, I did want to share info about one of this year’s first major street fests – Andersonville Midsommarfest – starting tomorrow evening! In past year’s I’ve really enjoyed the kid’s entertainment and street performers. On Clark St. running north from Clark & Foster.

“Midsommarfest is Andersonville’s annual summer street festival, now entering its 48th year. Each year, nearly 50,000 people throng Clark Street from Foster to Catalpa for two days of music, dancing, kids’ entertainment, and delicious food. Vendors from around the region sell their wares to passers-by, while ethnic dance troupes and cutting-edge bands keep the party going.”

The Yelp reviews are very positive. If you’ve not been so impressed with some other street fests that nominally have everything “music, dancing, kid’s entertainment, delicious”, etc. but not been to Midsommarfest, this one deserves a shot.

Check out the line-up, Abba Salute plays Saturday evening. http://andersonville.do312.com/

My kids have an Ice Skating show dress rehearsal and performance this weekend so I’m not entirely sure we’ll make it this year, but hopefully Sat night and Sunday afternoon!
