Chicago festivals this weekend: July 10-12

We like the number 10, especially when we get to say there are 10 festivals kicking off this weekend. Here’s the lowdown on this week’s newbies: Ruido Fest brings the Spanish alternative tunes, check out Mamby on the Beach for a toes-in-the-sand electronic dance experience and browse Artfest Michigan Avenue for fine art vendors. For beats in the street, check out West Fest and Square Roots Festival. Or hit up Irish Fest for a taste of culture.

Ruido Fest When: 3–10 p.m. Friday, noon–10...
