Chicago’s winter weather is the perfect time to practice the Swedish concept of fika ( pronounced fee-kah), which means spending downtime with coffee, cakes and getting cozy with friends. Head to Andersonville to enjoy all sorts of comforting treats during the Andersonville Fika Fest, February 9-11, 2024.
Warm your spirit with the Coffee and Hot Cocoa Crawl on February 10. Select a route for either beans or brew, collect your commemorative cup and prepare to sip in five different cafes from 10 am-1 pm. Purchase tickets for $25 here.
Nibble and shop at neighborhood restaurants and boutiques with special Fika Fest promotions all weekend. Top off the fest at the Great Andersonville Puzzle Exchange on February 11. Drop off new or gently puzzles and take a different one home.
Champion puzzlers can compete in the free Great Andersonville Puzzle Thrown Down, where the fastest puzzler wins a prize. Sign up for the competition that involves five rounds and 15 participants, here. The contest takes place from 11 am- 3 pm.
