Chicago's Top 10 May Events

Happy May, everyone! Along with what appears to be some nicer weather ahead, Chicago has plenty of fun events for all ages. Check out all of our favorite activities happening in the Windy City this month:

  1. This Saturday, May 5, head down to Soldier Field for the always-fun Chicago Beer Classic, featuring suds from over 70 local and national breweries.
  2. Take the children up to Cricket Hill at Montrose Harbor for the 20th annual Kids and Kites Festival on May 5.
  3. Cinco de Mayo is this upcoming weekend, so be sure to hit one of Chicago’s best Mexican restaurants for all of your favorite tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, and more! Also, don’t forget to check out Chicago’s Cinco de Mayo Parade on May 6 in Little Village.
  4. May 13 is Mother’s Day, so treat your mom to a delicious Mother’s Day Brunch.
  5. Chicago Craft Beer Week begins on May 18, and there’s no better way to kick things off than at Beer Under Glass at the Garfield Park Conservatory.
  6. Dig up those German roots and celebrate with – what else? – sausage and beer at Lakeview’s Mayfest, May 18-20.
  7. On May 19, check out all of the best food trucks Chicago has to offer at the Food Truck Social at Lincoln Park Zoo.
  8. Not quite ready for a full (or even half) marathon? No problem! Start with the Soldier Field 10 Mile on May 26.
  9. Head down to Daley Plaza for Chicago’s Memorial Day Parade on May 26. The wreath laying begins at 11:00 AM, with the parade immediately following at noon.
  10. Take advantage of the completely car-free Lake Shore Drive and bust out your two-wheeler for Bike the Drive on May 27.

Enjoy the month and the (hopefully) beautiful weather it brings!
