Halsted Street, between Grace & Addison, Chicago, IL
Held the weekend before Chicago's Pride Parade, Pride Fest moves its two-day street festival into Boystown, bringing a variety of musical acts (pop, top 40s dance), food and drink stalls, and a big crowd.
The Northalsted Business Alliance works cooperatively to maintain a diverse, safe and thriving shopping and entertainment district. In 1980, a small group of retailers in a four-block area along Halsted Street joined forces to promote the street and improve business conditions.
Since its inception, the Northalsted Business Alliance has grown to represent more than 80 businesses along North Halsted Street from Barry Street to West Irving Park Road. The Alliance has been recognized by the media, the City of Chicago and local residents as a major force in the community, championing positive change and growth.
