Our Musical Weekend on Chicago’s North Shore

On June 21 and 22, Byline was honored to join Valslist, the Village of Winnetka, the Winnetka Park District, Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce, the Winnetka Community House and other local community and civic leaders as a Gold sponsor of the 3rd Annual Winnetka Music Festival.

The Festival, which has rapidly become a fixture on the North Shore’s summer calendar, has grown exponentially since its inception in 2017. In fact, in only one year, attendance jumped 60 percent—and organizers are prepared for the trajectory to keep shooting up.

This summer, booth-manning Byliners from across Chicagoland joined happy festivalgoers in listening to emerging national artists as they performed across a variety of Byline-branded venues. The hardest job for our dedicated volunteers was deciding which area to “work:” between the two main stages, indoor chapel stage, family stage and an astounding assortment of youth street performers, there was literally something to enjoy on every street corner of the Village’s central business district.

No matter which spot people picked to stop for a sip or a bite, there was something delicious from one of the food trucks or local restaurants to enjoy at strategically placed picnic tables (which were some of the most hotly contested pieces of real estate on the North Shore that summer weekend).

For more than 100 years, Byline has been a fixture of the neighborhoods where we live, work and play. And we’re willing to shout over the great tunes coming from all the Music Festival’s stages to say how proud we are that we can add something positive and give back to the people who truly inspire us. It’s like we always say: we love this town.
