The annual four-day Fiesta del Sol festival is the largest of its kind in the country. It runs from Thursday 27 July to Sunday 30 July along Cermak Road between Ashland and Morgan.

Admission is free! Fiesta del Sol celebrates the beauty of Latino heritage, history, culture and strength.

This year, Fiesta del Sol and Pilsen Neighbors Community Council are awarding 43 scholarships to university students through a fellowship program.
