Sheffield Music Festival & Garden Walk


  • Sheffield Avenue & Webster Avenue 2200 North Sheffield Avenue Chicago, IL, 60614 United States (map)

Whether or not one has a green thumb, the iconic Sheffield Music Fest & Garden Walk, celebrating its 49th year in 2017, is inspirational, dreamy and motivational. It's a unique way to savor a summer weekend in the city! There's also a fantastic music lineup on two stages. 

Look for Virtue Cider on draft with Lapinette and Michigan Cherry, and Michigan Brut will be available cans!


More than 80 of the neighborhood's lush residential gardens will again be open for the public to explore. There are both self-guided garden tours, and guided architecture tours. Visitors are always amazed at the creativity of urban green spaces on splendid display. 

Presented by the Sheffield Neighbors Association, the weekend also includes food, and plenty of nifty afternoon activities for kids and families. 

Another exciting component of Sheffield Music Festival & Garden Walk is its partnering with the fifth annual Chicago Craft Beer Festival. This stand-alone microbrew fest will be held in tandem with the Garden Walk throughout the weekend and definitely enhances the crowds. 

Sheffield Music Fest & Garden Walk is help in conjunction to Chicago Craft Beer Festival which takes place on part of the same festival grounds during the day.
