Retro on Roscoe features Chicago’s top talent and entertainment on three main stages. Artisans, antique vendors, and cool merchants will provide a shopping experience that is second to none. Local restaurants fill the venue with summertime samplings and tasty treats. All this and more liven up this tree-lined street for an enjoyable three-day festival that brings back great memories while providing excellent entertainment for the entire family.

Retro’s Antique Car Show will showcase over 50 antique, classic and muscle cars throughout the weekend at the festival.

Our Family Area is one of the best in the City and offers top-notch talent, games, crafts, and lots more. Retro provides an incredible experience filled with exciting opportunities for all in attendance. Retro On Roscoe is the primary fundraising event that enables Roscoe Village Neighbors to sponsor so many community improvements.

Proceeds from Retro On Roscoe provide funds for major projects such as the recent streetscape projects, the installation of garbage cans, the “You Are Beautiful, Roscoe Village” artwork and projects that have improved our local parks. Funds from Retro are used to support for our local schools by funding teaching resources and reading materials. Plus, RVN hosts New Neighbor Welcoming Receptions, a Halloween Parade and Party, Winterfest (along with RVCC) and many more events and activities. The proceeds also pay for the RVN website and our announcements and newsletters.

RVN wishes to thank the 400+ volunteers who invest their time and energy each year to make Retro on Roscoe the best festival in the City. To show our appreciation for our volunteers, they are treated to a volunteer pre-party with plenty of food and beverages and all volunteers are guaranteed a free Retro on Roscoe t-shirt.
