Fiesta Back of the Yards 2017

CHICAGO, IL – On Friday, June 9, the Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council (BYNC), will host the 27th Annual “Fiesta Back of the Yards,”  a three-day street festival featuring live entertainment, rides & games, dozens of food vendors, Miss Back of the Yards and “Miss Belleza Chiquita” pageants, contest and talent show.  The festival will start at 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be from 12:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. on 47th Street from Ashland Avenue to Damen Avenue (1600 – 2000 West 47th Street).
More than 20 live bands are scheduled to perform and La Migra to headline the main stage.  “Fiesta” provides a safe, family-friendly environment to all in attendance while they celebrate the area’s culturally rich identity. “Fiesta” also promotes a positive image of the community, which is all-too-often tainted by senseless street violence and crime.
Some special promotions will be featured at this year’s event include free samples provided by McDonald’s and Goya products.  Fiesta is made possible, in part by proud sponsors like McDonald’s Hispanic Owner-Operator Association (MHOA), Coca-Cola, Comcast, SSA 10, Chicago White Sox, ComEd, Goldstein Bender & Romanoff, Harmony Health, Goya, Walmart, AT&T Food 4 Less and Univision Radio.

Any questions can be directed to BYNC’s event coordinators at (773) 847-4896 or email fabiola.flores@bync.org or gnevarez@bync.org. Any updates will be posted at the Facebook page at “Back of the Yards Neighborhood Council.”
