North Mayfair prides itself on its cultural diversity, historic bungalow architecture and small town charm. We love our parks, we love craft beer, we love good eats, and we love live music. So we’re celebrating this Labor Day weekend with our second annual neighborhood festival: Bikes, Bites & Brews - North Mayfair. 

Join us as we say good-bye to summer in style with a weekend packed full of family activities during the day, and grown-up fun (beer garden, food trucks, rock 'n roll) during the evening. 

All proceeds from the festival will benefit North Mayfair Improvement Association - Mural and Public Art Committee. Help us FUN-raise for murals and public art in our community.  

Friday, 6pm – 10pm
Saturday, 10am – 10pm
Sunday, 10am – 10pm

Festival Square is located at the corner of Lawrence and Kostner Avenues (4800 N./4400 W.), easily accessible by the CTA Lawrence Avenue (#81) bus. 


 
 

This is a bicycle-friendly and family-friendly event. Join us on Saturday morning at 10:00 AM for the Family Fun Ride as we explore the new extension of the North Branch Trail together. We will travel as a group - escorted by CPD and CDOT Street Ambassadors - from Festival Square to the North Branch Trail for a leisurely bicycle trail ride. Bicycle Tune-Up/Repair Service offered by Tailwind Cycles. Secure valet bicycle parking at Festival Square presented by Bikes 'N Roses.  Come for the bike ride...stay for the bites and brews.

 

 

We will tantalize your taste buds with an assortment of Chicago's favorite Food Trucks plus popular local food vendors Seafood City and Tina's Chicago. Food Trucks will rotate throughout the weekend, so there will be plenty of choices if you want to drop by again!

 

 

Over the past few years, the Northwest side has become the epicenter of Chicago's burgeoning craft brewing scene. We are pleased to offer full-size servings of local craft beer and cider in the shaded comfort of our Beer Garden. Participating craft brewers include:  Alarmist Brewing, Begyle Brewing Company, Lake Effect Brewing Company, Old Irving Brewing Company, Revolution Brewing and Right Bee Cider. From hoppy IPAs to refreshing lagers to crisp cider, we’ll have something for every taste.
