West Loop Summer Fest

Saturday & Sunday, July 9-10, 2022 | Washington & Sangamon, Chicago

Haymarket Center brought the beach to the West Loop for this year’s West Loop Summer Fest! From sand (you heard right) to festival yacht-rock and tropical-inspired tribute bands, guests were uprooted to a far-off island in their own backyard.

West Loop Fest grew from an annual birthday celebration for our founder, the late Monsignor Ignatius McDermott as a way to bring the community together and create goodwill among our neighbors. We continue to honor this tradition with our annual West Loop Summer Fest fundraiser. Funds raised help provide comprehensive substance use and mental health treatment to Chicago’s vastly ignored and underserved populations.
