The Bucktown Arts Fest is a non-profit, all volunteer-run, neighborhood celebration of the arts— with no corporate sponsorship. Admission is free. All proceeds from the Fest go to fund, develop and support arts education programming at Holstein Park and in the Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhoods.
Celebrating its 29th year in 2014, the Bucktown Arts fest has grown to become a neighborhood tradition and one of the city’s – and the country’s – premier arts festivals showcasing close to 200 participating artists, plus countless musicians, dancers, poets & performers.
The fest has always been known for the great art represented and sold by nearly 200 participating artists. But it’s also developing a reputation for bringing the art of craft beer into the beer tent.
On August 23 & 24, get ready for Summit Summer Ale, which will be available all weekend, and a rotating list of more than 20 specialty brews. These are beers that you don’t normally see at summer festivals, provided by the beer experts at Lakeshore Beverage.
Just like last year, the Bucktown Arts Fest has one barrel of each, so once a certain beer runs out, it won’t be back. The craft beer starts flowing at 1 p.m. on Saturday when the first two specialty barrels are tapped. After each runs dry, another specialty beer takes its place.
