Just in time to welcome the crisp autumn air, this family friendly event for kids and adults of all ages is sure to bring the community and its visitors together for a taste of what’s new and positive in the area.

Both sides of Milwaukee Avenue, beginning at Kimball through Ridgeway, as well as the strip of Belmont Avenue between Kedzie and the River, will offer food, discounts at many of the participating shops, along with artist-inspired events throughout the day. Local  musical artists and a variety of stops will be available along the strip including the debut of the new neighborhood map created by the Avondale Neighborhood Association. The map will help expose the area’s multicultural neighborhood and all it has to offer to the city and its visitors. Best of all, it’s FREE!!
