Going strong for more than 30 years, the Bucktown Arts Fest has been a neighborhood tradition and one of Chicago’s premier arts festivals, showcasing over 190 juried artists who work in oil, watercolor, photography, textile, sculpture, jewelry, and so much more.
Running from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 26-27, head over to Holstein Park (2200 N. Oakley Ave.) and experience this local gem first-hand.
Attracting more than 40,000 visitors annually, this volunteer-run arts fest is free to the public and plays host to two music stages, dancers, poets and performers, arts activities for kids, food trucks, and craft beer and sangria.
The Bucktown Arts Fest’s music stages are proud to put the spotlight on the remarkable musicians who live in and perform around Bucktown and its surrounding neighborhoods. This year’s diverse music lineup offers a range of musical styles from blues to bluegrass, jazz to indie rock.
New this year is the 1st annual Barktown Dog Parade, which will kick off the second day of the festival on Aug. 27 at 11:30 a.m. Dogs in costumes, what more could you want?
