Bucktown Arts Fest

What began as four neighborhood artists cobbling together a fair has turned into this annual festival offering art, music, poetry, theater and dance that has returned for over 30 years. See work from 200 artists, enjoy three stages featuring live music and kick back with a beer and some food.

More of a big block party than your average festival, this is the best fest in the city. It's also run by volunteers and all the money goes to fund arts education in the neighborhood. The artists are unique - unlike some other fests who all show the same people - and are there to sell you their work. There are two stages - rock and jazz - and a great kids area, plus you never know what fun performance might pop up. We're lucky to have this one in the city and in the neighborhood.
