Jefferson Park comes together to support Jeff Fest
The JEFFERSON PARK CHAMBER of COMMERCE would like to thank the following community groups, churches, schools and other organizations for their support of JEFF FEST. These groups provide dozens and dozens of volunteers who help make the festival a success. Special thanks to the Jefferson Park Neighborhood Association for once again organizing the gate volunteers and to Jefferson Park Forward for sponsoring the Community Stage, which will feature an array of local performers, everything from indie rock, post punk to Elvis, folk and pop.
As a THANK YOU to these organizations, we encourage Fest-goers to leave a tip at the Beer Tents when purchasing your beverages. All of the tip money goes to the organization serving your beer, glass of wine or pop. MILLER LITE is the festival’s beer sponsor. (Sorry, no wine tasting this year, but wine will be available in the Beer Tents.)

Enter from Lipps.There is no charge to park there, but please remove your vehicle within 15 minutes after the festival ends each evening. And our friends at the Chicago Fringe Festival will be returning to Jeff Fest and providing children’s activities on Saturday and Sunday.
The Jefferson Park Chamber of Commerce is an all-volunteer organization and greatly appreciates the help of those groups mentioned above.
