Ever wish you could go back in time? Well here’s your chance! Referred to by Patch as a “Generation X haven”, Chicagoans looking for a blast from the past don’t need to look further than the 19th annual Retro on Roscoe festival. Go back in time with more than 50,000 music enthusiasts, families, and gearheads for a fun-filled weekend.

Three stages will be spread amongst an eminent six-block stretch in Chicago’s favorite Roscoe Village. Live music will play oldies and throwbacks along with popular hits to keep festival goers moving through the sizzling summer nights! The soundtrack for the annual Retro on Roscoe will rock your socks!

The beautiful tree-lined streets of Roscoe Village will set the scene for artisans, antique vendors and cool merchants in a one-of-a-kind shopping atmosphere that is second to none. Roscoe Village’s top restaurants will also serve up much-desired summer treats that will keep the whole family satisfied.

After eating some small bites make sure to head over to the family area that offers top-notch inflatables, adorable crafts, balloon artists, face painting, music, rides and more. Once the kids have their dose of entertainment rev things up a notch with the Antique and Classic Car and Motorcycle Show. Presented by Four Treys Bar, Retro’s Antique Car Show will showcase over 50 antique, classic and muscle cars throughout the festival weekend.

Admission to Retro on Roscoe is a $10 suggested donation. The Roscoe Village Neighbors are a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers that work hard daily to ensure committed excellence in advocacy of quality-of-life for Roscoe Village, its residents, and merchants alike.
