  • All-State Barn Tour in Iowa

    Across the state, IA

    It's the Iowa Barn Foundation's annual free, self-guided tour of restored historic barns.


  • Hyde Park Jazz Festival

    Chicago, IL

    Listen to non-stop music during this free festival at venues in and around Midway Plaisance, near the Museum of Science and Industry and Lake Michigan.

    This year, the festival is virtual on Saturday, but on Sunday there will be live music on mobile stages in Hyde Park.


  • Fermentation Fest

    Sauk City, WI

    This fest in the scenic hills of southwest Wisconsin is not only about pickles and sourdough bread but also cheese, chocolate, beer and wine. There are classes, tastings and the 50-mile Farm/Art DTour, punctuated by art installations.

    This year, the self-guided Farm/Art DTour is still on. There will also be a Food Chain marketplace of food, art and ideas at Witwen Park & Campground, between Plain and Prairie du Sac.


  • Virtual Doors Open Milwaukee

    Milwaukee, WI

    More than 150 historic buildings — theaters, breweries, mansions, cathedrals, hotels, museums — are open to the public, and many offer free guided tours.

    More than three dozen in-depth walking tours also are offered but sell out quickly.

    This year, the event is virtual.


  • Virtual World Music Festival

    Chicago, IL

    The festival will be presented online 1-3 p.m. on Sundays in September.

    Normally, there will be more than 80 artists performing at more than 30 venues across the city, including the Chicago Cultural Center.
