One of the more popular street festivals in Logan Square is changing its name and moving back to its original location, according to a report from DNAinfo. The Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival will now be known as the Logan Square Arts Festival, but the event will still offer up a mix of exciting music, local vendors and pop-up art galleries. After taking place on Milwaukee Avenue between Logan Boulevard and Diversey Avenue for the past three years, the festival will move back to its original location in the park and streets surrounding the Illinois Centennial Monument at the center of the neighborhood.
I AM Logan Square, the non-profit that organizes the event, revealed that Whistler co-owner Billy Helmkamp has joined the festival's board. Perhaps this could signal return of the cocktail program that debuted at (and then quietly disappeared from) the event a few years ago? We'll find out more as we move closer to the Logan Square Art Festival, which will occur on June 26–28.
