#SouthSidePride: The 2019 Chicago Brew Fest

#SouthSidePride: The 2019 Chicago Brew Fest

#SouthSidePride

The Hyde Park brew fest happens every year in the heart of downtown Hyde Park Chicago.   Part beer fest, street best and food fest, the festival includes food, beers, ciders and some of the best hip-hop and house music by incredible DJs.  The 2 day festival was free to attend and was a perfect event to kick off your summer.  I was honored to cover the brew fest this year as the official blogger and attended both days.  As MC and radio personality, Leon Rodgers said, “This is the Chicago they don’t want you to see”.  It was a sea of people partying in peace on the Southside of Chicago. Where were the news cameras to capture all of this peace and positivity?  This is one of the reasons my website exists. This is the Chicago I know and love so much. This is one of the many reasons why #SummerTimeChi is like no other.  When the community comes out in peace and positivity, we send a message to the world that we are so much better than what they show in mainstream media. This is my #SouthSidePride.
