Festival Details - "Edgewater Arts Festival"...

5th ANNUAL EDGEWATER ARTS FESTIVAL SCHEDULED FOR SEPT. 23-24

WHAT: Surging in popularity among artists and residents, Edgewater Arts Festival brings together many different forms of art, including visual arts, music, and performing arts. The Festival features an impressive multi-cultural and multi-generational lineup of Chicago artists and is rapidly growing into one of Chicago’s premier artistic events. The event’s signature combination of “neighborhood party” atmosphere and “big city” caliber art attracts thousands of art lovers and buyers from all over the city.

This year’s program mirrors the lineup of attractions that have proved successful in the past years:

  • 100+ Chicago-based artists selected by juried process, exhibiting original works in painting, photography, glasswork, illustration, pottery, mixed media, functional art, and hand-made jewelry;
  • 3 stages of eclectic live music spanning jazz, reggae, country, flamenco, African drumming, show tunes, classical music, folk and choir singing;
  • Children’s Activity Corner for kids aged 1-12;
  • Beer Garden with food from Edgewater restaurants;
  • Young Artists’ Gallery with artworks by students from local grade schools and high schools;
  • Children’s Music Talent Showcase, with performances by elementary school aged kids who reside in Edgewater

WHY: The Fest was established in 2013 to help put Edgewater on the map of artistic destinations in Chicago and celebrate its cultural and creative diversity, while helping local businesses grow.
