The 9th Annual Glenwood Ave Arts Fest in Rogers Park's Glenwood Ave Arts District was a fantastic Fest. It was the largest yet; with 110 artist, 12 sponsor, and 10 food & drink booths. The three stages featured a total of 51 acts in what was one of the best lineups we can recall. The ARTery exhibit featured the work of another 12 artists installed in business' windows throughout the Fest area.
Clear sunny skies and a gentle breeze provided the most perfect weekend weather one could order. Artist load-in and load-out went quite smoothly. Crowds this year were larger than in years past; but the expanded layout, increased audience space, and additional toilets accommodated them effortlessly.
Our countdown ticker has been updated. Only 361 days remain until next year's Fest!
