Southport at Waveland | Chicago
Southport on Southport gives attendees a delicious, eclectic mixture of the culinary, visual, and performing arts. This two-day community festival is located at 3700 N. Southport at Waveland near Wrigley Field home of the Chicago Cubs. Southport is one of the city’s mecca shopping/nightlife districts and includes beautifully maintained tree-lined streets, with rows of lovely houses in all manner of architectural styles. Local artisans will showcase their wares and local restaurants and eateries will offer your favorite summer food.
Our Sunday Gospel Brunch will provide an early morning opportunity to join us in this celebration of community. Summer on Southport has always featured Chicago’s favorite entertainers, including Ralph Covert, Edwin McCain, Justin Roberts and many more. This festival always offers an exciting array of live music on our main stages and lots of other interactive activities and entertainment opportunities.
Known for its unique and independent boutiques, this neighborhood is one of Chicago’s premier shopping attractions. Visit Uncommon Ground, a locally owned coffee shop featuring local musicians, or catch a movie at Southport’s Music Box Theatre, a neighborhood staple since 1929, showing foreign, art house and classic films. The Lakeview/Southport corridor neighborhood offers many options for dining, drinking, shopping, and theater as well as baseball at the historic Wrigley Field.
Summer on Southport benefits the Southport Neighbors Association. Since 1988, Southport Neighbors Association (SNA) has been representing the residents and businesses of the unique and vibrant neighborhood, in the heart of Lakeview. Admission is a $5 suggested donation.
