Wrigleyville SummerFest is the only guaranteed win you’ll find in Wrigleyville all summer. So forget about the Cubs for second, and instead jump off the el at the Addison stop to enjoy live music, the best food vendors Chicago has to offer, an interactive kids zone – plus all the usual eateries, bars and venues that make make the area well-known when SummerFest isn’t going on. It’s fun for the whole family right outside one of our country’s most historic stadiums.
