Wells Street is easily accessible via the Red Line (Clark/Division Station) and Brown Line (Sedgwick station) public train systems.
Artist Booths -- Over 225 juried artists from across the continent. A number of disciplines are represented -- from traditional painting and sculpture, to artisan woodworking and metalsmithing, jewelcraft, the digital arts and more.
Entertainment -- The Wells Street Art Festival has a dedicated performance stage in the rear lot of O'Briens Restaurant (1528 N. Wells). Local music, performance artists and cover/tribute bands are featured here throughout the weekend.
Childrens' Play Area -- Each year, we strive to create a fun, interactive space for your kids where they can do arts & craft, participate in a performance, or just goof off! The children's play area is located at the corner of Wells Street and Evergreen Street.
Food and Drink -- The festival features 20+ food and drink vendors selling a varied assortment of tasty treats. With so many amazing Old Town restaurants participating, you may just want to try something from all of them!
