The whole family can celebrate Pilsen Fest, a community event celebrating the neighborhood of Pilsen, featuring musicians, chefs, mixologists, poets, muralists, painters, writers, documentarians, and photographers. There are kid-friendly activities and workshops.

From the host: "Pilsen Fest uses music, theatre, poetry, food culture, handcrafts, educational seminars, and the arts as a means of promoting and preserving Pilsen’s rich cultural heritage. Recognizing the historic and cultural value that the Pilsen neighborhood holds for Latino/Mexican Chicago, the Pilsen Fest uses the arts to expose Chicago to the local and national artistic talents and to embrace the history and community pride that Pilsen represents for the diversity of Chicago as a global city."
