Things To Do in Chicago on Labor Day Weekend

Well friends, we are sad to admit it, but the end of summer draws nigh — it’s Labor Day weekend!
According to PR Newswire, Chicago has ranked in the top 10 worst cities for Labor Day weekend traffic. So we thought we’d compile a list of fun things happening around the city this weekend for you to check out:
Chicago Jazz Fest
Happening now through Sunday, the Chicago Jazz Fest offers FREE concerts at Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park and Grant Park. Brining internationally-renowned and local jazz talents together, the jazz fest is a cool way to spend Labor Day weekend. Check out the complete schedule of events here.
North Coast Music Festival
If jazz isn’t your thing, head on over to the West Loop for the North Coast Music Festival featuring hip-hop, jam, and electronic music with headlining acts including Girl Talk, Pretty Lights, Atmosphere, Paul Oakenfold, Big Boi, and many more. Details here.
Chicago Beaches
Beach season in Chicago officially ends September 3, so head on out to one of the many great Chicago beaches to soak up a few more rays of sun and enjoy one more weekend of fun on the beach. Or, if you’re in one of PPM‘s buildings with a rooftop pool, skip the crowds and enjoy the great city views!
Bangers & Lace Hot Dog Eating Contest
How many wieners can you stuff in your mouth? [Pun not intended] Bangers & Lace in Wicker Park is hosting their second annual hot dog eating contest on Monday… what’s more Chicagoan than that? Top prize is two Chicago Bears tickets and all participants get a t-shirt, beer, and more calories than is deemed necessary for a week. Check it out here.
Crush in Old Town
If you live in Lincoln Park or the Gold Coast be sure to check out Crush in Old Town, pairing wine, live music, food, artwork and much more. Crush is happening Saturday and Sunday on Wells St between Schiller and North Ave. More info here.
Ravenswood Remix
For the “green” among us, catch the Brown Line to Western and check out the Ravenwood Remix featuring eclectic artists that use recycled, re-purposed materials and found materials in their work. The Remix features food trucks, activities for kids, live music, and more. Check it out.
