The Buckinghams to play Heart of Chicago Festival, Saturday, Oct. 17th



The next Chicagoland performance of The Buckinghams is set for this weekend at the Heart of Chicago Festival, 24th and Oakley, to benefit the Heart of Chicago Association. The weekend-long event starts Friday, and The Buckinghams take the stage on Saturday, October 17th at 8 pm.

From their web site:
All things Italy will be celebrated at the inaugural Heart of Chicago Festival which coincides with October's Italian-American Heritage Month. The festivities run from Friday, October 16, through Sunday, October 18, in the city's Heart of Chicago neighborhood at 24th Street and Oakley.

The three-day fest will feature plenty of culinary delights and wine of the Mediterranean nation as well as music, artisans and a grape stomping contest.

For visitors who may not be familiar with the cozy Heart of Chicago enclave on the city's near southwest side, they'll be treated to a hidden neighborhood jewel that includes the Italian eateries lining Oakley.

The festival coincides with Italian-American Heritage Month, which first debuted nationwide 11 years ago.

Proceeds benefit the Heart of Chicago Association.
