Join us at the 33rd annual Bucktown Arts fest, August 25-26, 2018. Our tent is number #88, located on the border of Holstein Park near the beer tent!
The Bucktown Arts Fest is a non-profit, all-volunteer run, neighborhood celebration of the arts. All proceeds from the fest go to fund, develope and support programming at Holstein Park and in the Bucktown/Wicker Park neighborhoods.
Going strong for more than 30 years! We were thrilled to be voted 2013 “Best Art Sale” in the Chicago Reader Readers’ Pick Poll.
Our fest is free to the public. We have no gates and no donation request. True to our roots, we are an arts fest put together by the community, for our community.
We have no paid staff. We are organized, implemented, and managed by a committed group of volunteers, some of whom have been doing so for 10 years or more. Outside of gratitude, their only reward is a dinner at our monthly meetings.
Our artists are not mass producers. They are individual artists who are at their booths to share their work with you. Each year, our jury selects 190 artists to be invited to the fest.
