Just because the Taste of Chicago has ended doesn't mean Chicago's done eating, drinking and being merry outdoors. With burgers, craft beers and more taking center stage this weekend, there's no excuse to stay tied to your A/C between now and Monday.

Each Friday throughout the summer, HuffPost Chicago is sharing our five picks for that weekend's must-go festivals. This weekend, the city has almost a dozen popping up, but we rounded up the five events we're most excited to hit up.

Need still more options? The city maintains a relatively thorough calendar of neighborhood festivals throughout Chicago.

Have another favorite you'll be hitting up that we missed? Let us know in the comments.
