Edge Fest
Head to Edgewater this weekend to partake of the neighborhood's foods and listen to a few tribute bands. We suggest you head out on Sunday afternoon to see the Bark Bark Club's dog costume contest.
Edge Fest is at the intersection of Broadway and Thorndale avenues on Saturday from noon to 10 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Festival Cubano
If you like House music, head to the Cuban Festival in the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood on Friday night for their "History of House Music" outdoor dance party. If you like Cuban food, go all three days.
Festival Cubano is in Riis Park at Fullerton and Narragansett on Friday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Wrigleyville Summerfest
Well this music lineup looks familiar: It's all of the same tribute bands that perform at most of the city's street festivals. The Resurrection Lutheran Church puts this little neighborhood event together, and if you're the church-going type, go on Sunday for worship, brunch and a performance by the gospel choir.
Wrigleyville Summerfest is at School and Seminary on Saturday from noon to 10 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 9 p.m.
