FREE North Suburban festivals and evening concerts, 2018

Here are lists of FREE local [music and other stuff] festivals, and FREE outdoor evening concert series' around the North Suburbs of Chicago. I've been to some of them at one time or another, and i can attest, they're definitely worthy. And most are relatively easily accessible via CTA and/or METRA trains…….AND bicycles. Please note---some of the venues, such as Independence Grove, the Gillson parking lots and the Chicago Botanic Gardens have PARKING FEES.
