For two decades, The Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest (GAAF) has presented a free, weekend-long arts festival featuring 120+ artists, open studios, and live entertainment on two outdoor stages. This year, Miss Alex White & Francis White are booking all 32 bands for the Chicago-based street festival. Attendees view and purchase handmade artworks directly from the creators. The Fest brings free live music, performances and art demonstrations — along with street food and craft beer from local merchants on the cobblestone streets of the Glenwood Avenue Arts District in Chicago’s historic Rogers Park neighborhood.
The 20th annual Fest will take place the weekend of August 20-22, 2021.
Chicago is a thriving city that booms with diverse artists. Through this wild roller coaster of 2020, artists are suffering now more than ever. This city needs their voices to be heard. The Chicago Artists Relief Fund is a project put together for artists, by artists. It supports creators who are suffering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The funds will give mini-grants to artists most affected by the quarantine. Join together with our vibrant lineup of musicians on Sunday, July 5th at 6pm for this historical concert!
