CHICAGO — Drag queen Trixie Mattel and singers Todrick Hall and Greyson Chance are among the performers headlining Market Days this August.
Market Days, which returns this summer after being canceled because of the pandemic last year, is set for Aug. 6-8 on Halsted Street between Belmont Avenue and Addison Street. The festival celebrating LGBTQ pride is hugely popular.
This year’s festival will also include a Community Pride Stage with 10 local LGBTQ+ artists.
“This will be a very special edition of Northalsted Market Days,” Mark Liberson, Northalsted Business Alliance vice president and festival organizer, said in a news release. “We’ve all endured incredible challenges through the pandemic. Thanks to continuing vaccinations, we’ll be able to celebrate Market Days as a community once again.”
A $15 donation will be suggested at the entrance, which helps to cover festival costs and supports local nonprofits and community programs.
