We are counting down to 8th Annual 79th Street Renaissance Festival, this coming Saturday, September 7th, 10:00am - 7:00pm, starting at the intersection of 79th and Racine. 

Festival Programs: Tell your friends and family there is a loaded line-up of local RAP, R&B and Gospel entertainers, local businesses, amazing food vendors, job information, local schools, technology, free health screenings and maybe even a free hair cut. Stay until the end for the community "House" Music Party with the King of House - Farley!

Auburn Gresham Gold School youth, come early starting at 10am, there will be a video arcade game trailer with all your favorite video games! Also, get tickets at your school, for a free ride on the Ferris wheel. There are lots more in the kids and youth corner at RENFEST 2013, so bring all your friends, for a great time!

Taste of Chicago patrons: Couldn't get enough of BJ's Market & Bakery or Soul Food Unlimited, then please mark your calendars for the 8th Annual 79th Street Renaissance Festival and Family Jam for Peace. As in previous years, there will be lots of food, fun, and entertainment for all ages.

For the first time ever, you can purchase your commemorative 8th Annual Renaissance Festival T-shirt for only $10! The festival is a fundraiser, so GAGDC can improve and expand future festivals. Don't just by one, buy two! 

For your enjoyment to sample food, purchase at the vendors and for donations, bring cash or credit. 

See you Saturday at the Renaissance Festival!
