The south suburbs are filled with a great variety of summer festivals. There's carnivals, food-centric events, concerts, arts fairs and more.
Summer festivals are a great way to spend a day with the family outdoors, experience new art and culture or just do a little day drinking.
So tell us—What's the best of the fests in the Southland? There's no doubt that we have a repertoire of options in Orland Park, , Oak Forest, Palos, Chicago Heights, Homewood-Flossmoor, Evergreen Park, Oak Lawn, Frankfort, New Lenox and Mokena.
Nominate your favorite festival by telling us in the comments. Here are a few examples, but they MUST BE NOMINATED to be included in the poll! As festivals are nominated, they'll be added to the list and bolded.
