Fiesta Del Sol is a free four-day family friendly Mexican festival in the heart of one of Chicago’s most attractive communities – Pilsen.  This event spans an eight-block space down Cermak Road and can be seen from miles around because of the carnival’s Ferris Wheel and the bright lights of over 100 booths showcasing some of the best tacos, tamales and tostadas in town.  It draws over one million people and has become a major economic engine for local businesses.  Well known artists, as well as up and coming talent, perform on our two stages. Don’t miss out on any of the fun for the whole family!
