Bitter Jester Music Fest

Bitter Jester Music Fest
Friday Nights in June & July 4  
 
               
Now in its 12th year, the Bitter Jester Music Fest holds its Grand Finale Concert at Wolters Field leading up to the fireworks!  Winning bands are selected by professional and celebrity judges during preliminary battles every Friday night in June at 7:00 PM at Port Clinton Square.  Eight semi-finalist bands then compete against each other on the 4th of July for over $20,000 in combined cash and other prizes and the chance to be named the 2017 Grand Champion!  Food, drink, and dessert vendors will be on hand all night long. This summer-long music festival is produced by the Bitter Jester Foundation for the Arts, NFP, a not-for-profit charitable organization in Highland Park.
