Street festival season is upon us, so don’t miss out on one of the best with Do-Division Street Fest and Sidewalk Sale.

Do-Division Street Fest and Sidewalk Sale is the perfect event to dip your toe in the Wicker Park/Bucktown and West Town neighborhoods if you’ve never been before. The heart of the festival is in the two stages hosting 30 bands over the three-days. The stages are curated by rock venue icons Empty Bottle and Subterranean. One band you’re not going to want to miss is Doomtree on Friday on the West Stage at 8:30 p.m. with their unique hip-hop sound.

Along with the music check out the local businesses selling their goods during the sidewalk sale. Everything from eateries to boutiques will be selling items and many will have great deals.

Families with knee-high tykes can spend Saturday and Sunday with the festival within the festival known as the Family Fun Fest. The children can enjoy pony rides, basketball, archery, face painting, and more. It will surely make those without children wish they had a pair of their own.

Do-Division Street Fest and Sidewalk Sale will take place Friday, June 3 from 5 p.m.–10 p.m. and Saturday, June 4 through Sunday, June 5 from 12 p.m.– 10 p.m. on Division Street from Damen Avenue to Leavitt Street. The sidewalk sale extends to Ashland Ave. There is a recommended donation of $5 at the gate. For more information visit do-divisionstreetfest.com.
