German American Festival in Lincoln Square
A great way to usher in fall is with the Lincoln Square German American Festival. As the heart of German culture in Chicago, the Lincoln Square Chamber of Commerce programs the weekend’s events. Kick up your heels to live music and then grab a seat and order traditional fare, like a brat or Bavarian pretzel (don’t forget the mustard). Wash it down with a mug of fine German bier. Make sure to purchase a mug from the festival or bring one back from years past for your refills. It’s a great time for the whole family. Lederhosen not required.
