Chicago’s iconic Southport Corridor bloomed to life when Southport Art Fest took over Waveland and Southport in July of 2023. Featured in TimeOut Chicago as one of the “Best Festivals in Town,” the event featured an assorted mix of fine art, setting the environment for a picture-perfect Chicago neighborhood street festival.
Festival fans visited the beautiful tree-lined streets of the picturesque neighborhood. Just steps away from the friendly margins of Wrigley Field, the two-day festival showcased some of the city’s best and most diverse artists. Southport Art Fest put numerous art forms including oil, acrylic, watercolor, jewelry, sculpture, photography, wood, fiber, glass, paper, metal, and mixed media at center stage all weekend long.
Southport Art Fest benefits the Southport Neighbors Association. Since 1988, Southport Neighbors Association (SNA) has represented the residents and businesses of the unique and energetic neighborhood, in the heart of Lakeview.
