What does LilFest do?

About the House Concerts: Join me, if you will, for the fun and music in the living room. The refreshments provided will be simple and non- alcoholic. Contributions of goodies - homemade, store-bought, your choice of beverages, whatever, are also most welcome, even encouraged, but by no means required. There will be a basket available to support the House's expenses: PR, equipment, refreshments, chairs, repairs and the like, should you choose to do that. Suggested contributions for the artists vary between $12 and $20. Reservations are necessary, please, e-mail ( preferred. Phone 312-371-2284. Space is limited and sellouts do occur. Doors open fifteen minutes before the show and we are located 4-5 blocks from either the CTA's Linden stop on the purple line or the METRA's Wilmette stop. See Directions for further details.  Please Join Our Mailing List for timely notification of the many events we have planned.  Please direct all questions and suggestions to Contact LilFest.
