Chicago! The Windy City has a lot of great events blowing in around this month besides the usual tourist attractions: strolling down Michigan Avenue, bike-riding along the Lakeshore Drive, or going to the Chicago Institute of Art are always favorites for people visiting Chi-Town.
There are a lot of fun fall events to cozy up to this year. Oktoberfest celebrates the best beer in Chicago in a lovely beer garden setting. Oktoberfest at St. Alphonsus is well attended each year and loads of fun! Beer, pretzels, music and more. See their event lineup here.
Another great family event is the Halloween Farm! It’s outside the city, but it’s well worth the drive. Bengston’s Pumpkin Fest will be going on through October the 30th. Midnight Circus in the Parks is also a great time for all ages. They will be located at several locations, so check the local paper or their website here for more information.
A fun event for us grown-ups is the Bloody Mary Festival! Bars and restaurants will be competing to win, with you as the sampler. Sounds like a blast!
On a healthier note, there is also the Apple Fest on Michigan Avenue. There you’ll find vendors selling candied apples, scarves, hats, and hot apple cider. Delicious!
Whether you’re wearing a lightweight leather jacket or a cashmere sweater in the Windy City, or you’re down in Southern Florida wearing those lightweight cottons, remember that it’s all about style!
