Bucktown Arts Fest
Located in one of the hottest, most affluent neighborhoods on the north side of Chicago, the Bucktown Arts Fest will celebrates its' 35th year in 2022. What began as four artists showing their work in the park has grown into a community tradition that hosts an estimated 40,000 people each year. We were thrilled to be voted 2013 “Best Art Sale” in the Chicago Reader Readers’ Pick Poll.
Known for both its grassroots atmosphere and its tradition of great artists representing their own, handmade work. Our jury selects up to 190 artists to be invited to the fest each year.
The Bucktown Arts Fest is a non-profit, all-volunteer run, neighborhood celebration of the arts. All proceeds from the fest go to fund, develop and support arts education programming at Holstein Park and in the Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhoods. Our fest is free to the public. We have no gate and no donation request for patrons to enter this Fest. True to our roots, we are an arts fest put together by the community, for our community.
