About the Event

$10 Suggested Donation

Haymarket Center is bringing the beach to the West Loop for this year’s West Loop Summer Fest! From sand (you heard right) to festival yacht-rock and tropical-inspired tribute bands, you’ll be uprooted to a far-off island in your own backyard. And that’s before the tasty beverages and local food vendors (a trait the West Loop is known for). West Loop Fest grew from an annual birthday celebration for our founder, the late Monsignor Ignatius McDermott as a way to bring the community together and create goodwill among our neighbors. We continue to honor this tradition with our annual West Loop Summer Fest fundraiser. Funds raised will help provide comprehensive substance use and mental health treatment to Chicago’s vastly ignored and underserved populations.
