A major community event is the popular Midsommarfest. This annual June street festival offers music, dancing, children’s entertainment and scrumptious food.

As another nod to the area’s heritage, The Swedish American Museum hosts the St. Lucia Festival of Lights each December. It features holiday treats, storytelling and entertainment, including a processional of “Lucia girls” in white robes and crowns of candles.
How Do I Get Around?
As a small urban area, Andersonville is teeming with pedestrians and bicyclists. From Andersonville Chicago apartments, if you don’t own a bike, you can rent one at a local Divvy bike-sharing station. The neighborhood accommodates bike riders with plenty of spaces to park their vehicles, as well as a new bike lane that goes through Edgewater and Andersonville and is known as the Glenwood Greenway.
In the heart of the north side, Andersonville supports a robust public transportation system. The CTA red line “L” travels 24/7 through the area, linking the far north side of the city to the Loop and beyond to the far south side. Many CTA bus routes traverse the neighborhood, the main ones being the 22 (Clark) and 92 (Foster). Cabs and ride-sharing vehicles are available, too.
