about blooming fest
The City of West Chicago welcomes you to come visit us for one of our favorite traditions - Blooming Fest!
Blooming Fest is the official welcoming committee of spring, and is held outdoors in the downtown area of West Chicago. Gardening enthusiasts, craft lovers, and everyone else, are welcome to come explore our historic downtown area while viewing a variety of plants, crafts, jewelry, and other goods from our event vendors.
Apart from our great vendors, the festival also features a large selection of food vendors, live music and activities the whole family can enjoy.
