The fourth annual Sangria Festival Chicago is scheduled for the weekend of August 17-18, and it promises to be as big a hit as in previous years. The festival obviously features plenty of tasty sangria recipes (more than 20), ranging from classic red sangria filled with stone fruit, to white sangria with apples and pears, to champagne sangria with berries. But you’ll also have access to various add-ons, including musical performances, dance troupes, retail tents, and more. Feeling artistic? You can sign up for a "paint and sip" session, where a professional artist guides you through each step of a painting while you sip your sangria in the park.
Festival tasting tickets start at $15 and include 2 sangria pours, a souvenir glass, and access to all festival entertainment. VIP passes are also available with multi-day admission privileges (visit the website for a full list of other VIP perks).
