Residents of Proviso Township know the summer’s end with the approach of two of the biggest suburban festivals in the area — the Taste of Melrose Park and Maywood Fest. The two events usually follow the Taste of Bellwood, which takes place each year in early August.

This year, the Taste of Melrose Park will happen Friday, Sept. 2 through Sunday, Sept. 4, near 25th Avenue and Lake Street in Melrose Park. This year’s Taste will feature more than 50 food vendors and tons of plenty of live music. 

Other features include a free interactive racing game, the Jesse White Tumbling Team and the Pipes and Drums of Emerald Society Bagpipers. See a full list of food vendors and a schedule of this year’s Taste at melrosepark.org. 

The Maywood Fest will happen the following week, from Friday, Sept. 9 through Sunday, Sept. 11, at the park at 5th Avenue and Oak Street in Maywood. 

This year’s Fest will feature food, games, rides and live music. In addition to regular staples like Sunday’s Gospel Show, the Fest will also include a Car Show. This year’s headline musical acts include Regina Belle, Howard Hewett and Miki Howard.
