Chicagoans love their summer street fests – as long as it’s on someone else’s street.

West Lakeview Neighbors, the beneficiary of proceeds from Rock Around the Block, wants to be, well, neighborly, in soliciting input from area residents prior to the July fest.

A pair of community forums have been scheduled with Star Events, the producer of RATB. The first meeting is scheduled for May 22, 6:30 p.m. at the Lincoln-Belmont Library, 1659 W. Melrose. The second will be held June 28, 6:30 p.m., at the same location.

RATB is booked for July 7 -8, noon – 10:30 p.m., and is centered near the intersection of Lincoln and Belmont. The festival features art and crafts, a variety of food vendors and music. A Family Area will keep the little rockers occupied with games and entertainment.
