Head down to Pullman on the Far South Side this weekend for Mulligan Stew, urban-industrial camping, and a walking tour of “Bumtown” – it’s Hobofest! On Saturday and Sunday, the historic neighborhood plays host to a slew of hobo-related events, all centered around the Pullman Palace Car Company Clock Tower. The festivities kick off at 4:30 PM Saturday with a welcome dinner, followed by a Grand Hobo Concert. There will be various hobo artists and performers throughout the weekend. Sunday features exhibits on Hobo history, tours of the hobo sites of Pullman and the South Side (note: these cost $5 and $10, respectively, though the other events are all free), a barndance, and Mulligan Stew (normally prepared by dumpster diving but this year provided for by donations). Consult the Hobofest website for a detailed map of the festivities. If driving, take I-94E to exit 66A (111th Street). You can also take the Metra Electric line from downtown to the 111th Street station, or try your luck with the freight trains that often run on the same tracks.
