Have any plans this weekend? Why not get a little more art in your life, AND give back to the community as well! This Saturday and Sunday, August 23-24, is the Bucktown Arts Fest. This non-profit, all volunteer-run, neighborhood celebration of the arts is void of corporate sponsorship and admission is free. However, all proceeds from the Fest go towards the funding and development of the arts and education programming at Holstein Park and within the local Bucktown/Wicker Park classrooms.
The fest showcases close to 200 artists, an eclectic mix of musicians, dancers, poets and performers and even offers a pub crawl. This year will mark its 29th year, and attracts more than 40,000 visitors annually. The fest is located at the Senior Citizen’s Park between Oakley and Lyndale Aves. in Bucktown.
For more information about the fest and how to get there, check out their main site.
