I have, on occasion, but it usually gets a little ripe down there (not to mention crowded!) after a while. I prefer "the people by the fountain", especially after hours!

To get from O'Hare to Rosemont take the Blue Line El to Rosemont Station,than RTA bus 221 or 223,both of which leve you off near the hotel (roughly 1000 foot walk).

Sorta late on this one...but I'm going to Chicago Beatlefest for the second time this year, after 24 years of attending them in New York. I was at the NY Fest back last month, and it was a great disappointment, unfortunately...the guests were not very exciting, the flea market, as people have said, has nothing to interesting (I didn't buy ANYTHING...) and the hotel in NJ is too small.

That said, though -- the Chicago Fest is MUCH better! The fest itself is the same sort of thing, but the hotel is nicer, the people are friendlier, and there are PLENTY of other things to do besides shop or watch movies or stuff...and yes, Terri Hemmert is probably the BEST Beatlefest MC I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of 'em over the years in NYC.

And yes, it's worth it to find the Bootleg Room if you can!

Hey, Beatlefest! Can't wait for August... I'll be going on Friday! I wish I could go longer, but I start school (my last semester!) on Monday. Next year will be different, I'll be able to go all three days. Last year I found the Bootleg room, and the year before that too. The people are very nice there and there is so much to do. I can't speak for the other ones, since I've never been, but Chicago Beatlefest rocks!

Ummm...info for the Chicago fest won't be up for a while...I think they generally update the page for that one sometime in early June, about the time the mailing goes out. Anyway, the guest info for Chicago isn't up yet...but it's a good idea to check every so often...

I always thought it was fiendish DINGY; I'll have to watch Help! again.
I just watched it a couple weeks ago and discovered there was bonus footage at the end of the tape. It was kinda like finding ten bucks in a pair of old jeans.Or like waking up early ready to fly out the door for work and you realize it's Saturday.Or it's raining the morning of the day you throw a big party and it clears up to be one of the most glorious days in history...sorry, it's the li'tl things ya know.

No, I haven't went...but I really want to. My friend told me that Yoko and Sean Lennon are there every year. Sometimes the three remaining Beatles go. If I go, I would really like it if I went when the Beatle go.

Not sure who told you that, strawberry, but I think they were putting you on. They wouldn't come within miles of a Beatlefest!

Favorite quote on the subject comes from Mike McCartney when he was at Chicago Beatlefest some years back. He said he'd been on the phone with this brother and told him where he was. Paul's response? "What the hell are you doing THERE??" (amused, not angry)

Yeah, really! I've been going to Beatlefest in NY since 1977, and the closest I've come to a Beatle was Louise Harrison! You might get a Beatle sib or a close Beatle associate, but an ACTUAL Beatle? Nope...not in a million years! My God, they'd be killed by the mob scene! Sorry Strawberry, but someone's putting you on big time!

I did hear once that John was interested in attending the New York Beatlefest and asked Mark Lapidos if he could get him (John) in and out safely. Mark's reply - "I can get you in, but not sure if I can get you out." Needless to say, John didn't go.

While I would personally like to see any of 'em (and that includes Yoko and Sean), I do believe it would be wiser if none of them make an appearance at a Beatlefest. Nothing against Lapidos, and I truly enjoyed the one fest I actually got to go to, but it's a mob scene even without the Beatles. I don't think anyone could guarantee their safety with any kind of decent percentage.
