Celebrate the beginning of autumn by stopping by the sixth annual Edgewater Arts Festival on September 29th and 30th. Produced by Edgewater Artists in Motion, the festival showcases the best of the neighborhood. Taking place on Granville between Broadway and Sheridan, it’s the perfect afternoon outing to take with your friends or family. See the top reasons why you should stop by:
See & Shop Art of All Mediums
Find the perfect painting, poster, photograph, or drawing to decorate your home or office. Our arts vendors offer art in all mediums, so you can also find handmade jewelry and furniture at the open-air stalls.
Eat Delicious Food
There’s nothing more fun than enjoying food and craft beer outdoors while listening to live music! Try a new dish or an old favorite from one of our food vendors. You’re sure to find something delicious that the whole family will enjoy.
Listen to A Wide Range of Music
We don’t stick to just one music genre at the fest. If you’re nostalgic for the “Good Old Days’, you’ll love listening to the barbershop quartet, the Take Note Quartet. If you’re a fan of indie music, you’ll want to check out Snake Season, a group with a punk edge, and Liz and the Lovelies, a band with a folk vibe. The lineup also includes La Tosca, a gipsy jazz band, several rock groups, and even music for the children to enjoy. See the full music lineup on our site!
Participate in Family-friendly Activities
The festival is the perfect time to introduce your children to the visual arts and music. They’ll be able to experience a wide range of cultures too. Look for family-friendly events and activities taking place throughout the weekend.
Visit a Vibrant Neighborhood
Situated along Chicago’s lakefront, Edgewater has a rich history. Explore the turn of the century architecture, colorful street murals, and antique shops that are located on Broadway St and Sheridan Rd. Nearby Devon Street offers a taste of India in Chicago with dozens of restaurants and stores to explore. If you’re new to the city, or haven’t explored the neighborhood before, festival weekend is the perfect chance to do so.
It’s Easily Accessible Via Public Transit
If you’re taking public transit, the festival is located a short walk from the Granville red line station. The Broadway bus also makes stops near the fest. If you’re driving, we’re easy to get if you take Lake Shore Drive to Hollywood Avenue.
Stop by the Fest
We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Edgewater Arts Festival! We think it’s the perfect way to wrap up the fest season in Chicago, and it’s the perfect time to get a jump start on some holiday shopping. After the festival, drop by Gallery 1070, the home of Edgewater Artists in Motion. As the organizer of the festival, we’d love to introduce you to the neighborhood and the artists working here.
