Upcoming Block Party: the Wells Street Art Festival

The time is coming again to get out and check out the Wells Street Art Festival! Featuring the paintings, sculptures, glasswork, photography, ceramics, and woodwork of more than 250 artists, the annual fest will go down for its 40th year in the Historic Old Town. The event is happening on Saturday and Sunday, June 14-15 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.! Aside from the art, there will be live rock and jazz that continuously plays, as well as a huge assortment of awesome food.

The outdoor block party extravaganza is one of the Windy City’s most acclaimed fine arts festivals. Free to all, the event will be located on 1500 N Wells street between North Avenue and Division.

There will also be a silent auction held on Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. There, you can place your bid on beautiful, original works of art donated by artists exhibiting in this year’s art festival. Fifty percent of each auction sale benefits the Old Town Merchants & Residents Association.
