Chicago Fest West
Save the date for SUNDAY, APRIL 30TH, 2023! A Celebration of Chicago is coming to Mesa.
Chicago Festival West, a Chicago themed outdoor festival is scheduled for April 30th, 2023, at Mesa Riverview Park just east of the Chicago Cubs Spring Training Stadium at 2100 W Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa, AZ 85201. The outdoor festival will feature everything Chicago including tribute bands Survivor the Cheap Trick Experience Tribute, “Chicago Uncorked" Dance Cover Band, Bluesman Mike and the Blues Review, and much more. There will be plenty of Chicagoan culture, food tents and trucks, arts & crafts booths, vendors, sports memorabilia, neighborhood pavilions with Chicago style ethnic foods, youth art exhibits, chalk artists, a Chicago graffiti artist, a vintage car show, sports dignitaries like Jim McMahon and Bill Melton, a high school drumline, and other live entertainment throughout the weekend. Tickets are $22.00 pre-purchased and $26.00 at the gate.
This second-year event is being presented by College Bound, www.collegeboundaz.org an Arizona non-profit 501c3 organization that helps underserved youth achieve their dream of a brighter future through a college education. Although the April 30th, 2023, Chicago Fest West is only in its second year as a festival, College Bound envisions it growing into an annual weekend Arizona event similar to the South by Southwest Austin festival and to be their annual signature fundraising event. Purchase tickets here on Eventbrite.
