History Of WeishFest


WeishFest (pronounced “Wish” Fest) is a one-night music festival unlike anything in the area, held by and for a 501c3 non-profit organization called The Andrew Weishar Foundation ("Weish4Ever"). Every dollar we raise at this event benefits Weish4Ever's mission of providing direct support and financial relief to families with adolescents and young adults battling cancer. WeishFest started in 2013 as a summer music festival at Standard Bank Stadium in Crestwood, IL. In 2016, the event moved indoors to 115 Bourbon Street to create a one of a kind, intimate, indoor music event. WeishFest has quickly gained national attention and 2018 will be the event's 6th year as the biggest party on the Southside of Chicago. Along with our local cover band favorites, WeishFest has welcomed national artists such as O.A.R., Third Eye Blind, Rodney Atkins, Eddie Money, Warrant & more!
