Chicago Gospel Festival

June is a beautiful month in Chicago - just warm and sunny enough to enjoy the outdoors. It's the perfect month to enjoy the Chicago Gospel Music Festival taking place throughout several of the city's parks June 20 through 23. All of the festival events are completely free but, before you go there are a few things you should know.


In addition to a wealth of awesome local street festivals, Chicago summers are also generously seasoned with big scale music festivals throughout our city's parks. When you only have so much time though (not to mention money in your bank), sometimes it's hard to decide which festivals you'll enjoy the most.

Chicago Gospel Festival

Fans of powerful refrains and dramatic harmonies rejoice because the Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events (DCASE) just announced their headliners for the 28th Chicago Gospel Music Festival. This year's event (Thursday, June 20 - Sunday, June 23) includes Grammy Award winners, Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductees and some of the city's most talented local choirs.
