Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.
Check out the 25th annual African Festival of the Arts at Washington Park. Pavilions across the festival grounds feature African drumming, film, fine arts, jewelry, interactive demonstrations, wellness workshops, and children's programming. Today's musical guests include Mali afro-pop singer-songwriter Salif Keita and band Harriet Tubman.
Catch day two of Remix Chicago, a Logan Square arts festival celebrating repurposed arts and crafts. Food vendors, live music, and eco-friendly workshops line Milwaukee Avenue between Fullerton and California. Chicago bands the Boxers and Vaya are among today's musical acts.
All-you-can-eat barbecue is anything but hogwash at HogFight. Mahoney's Pub & Grille teams up with Mercat a la Planxa, Fireplace Inn, Frontier, Chef AJ's Carry Out, and Roy's, throwing a party full of music, drinks, coleslaw, corn on the cob, and, of course, barbecued pork.
