Summer Art Blooms in the Bucktown Neighborhood

The Bucktown Arts Fest is excited to announce four art events throughout the neighborhood this summer. Partnering with the Friends of Holstein Park, Leavitt Street Inn & Tavern, and Little Broken Things, our aim is to celebrate local artists and the artist in you.

Events include a create-your-own arts fest, bird house workshop, and shows with work from recognized BAF artists.

“Our 2020 and 2021 festivals were rightfully cancelled, but with millions now vaccinated and gathering restrictions loosening, we’re excited to promote these events,” said Melissa Hellstern, Board President of the Bucktown Arts Fest. “I can’t wait to see our neighborhood flooded with art.”

Details on each event can be found below. Stay up-to-date with the latest information by following BAF online or visiting bucktownartsfest.com.
