The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events has shared with us that all special events in Chicago through Labor Day will be canceled. This includes our famous Southport Art Festival 2020. This has been decided out of an abundance of caution for the attendees, vendors, and employees who attend this event. We are thrilled to begin planning Southport Art Festival for July 10-11, 2021! Artist and food vendor applications will be available soon. Until then, it is our job to help flatten the curve and stop the spread of COVID-19.
Chicago’s iconic Southport Corridor blooms to life next summer when Southport Art Fest takes over Waveland and Southport in July of 2020. Featured in TimeOut Chicago as one of the “Best Festivals in Town,” the event will feature an assorted mix of fine art, setting the environment for a picture-perfect Chicago neighborhood street festival.
Festival fans will visit the beautiful tree-lined streets of the picturesque neighborhood. Just steps away from the friendly margins of Wrigley Field, the two-day festival will showcase some of the city’s best and most diverse artists. Southport Art Fest will 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.
Families will have the opportunity to bring their children, and enjoy all that Southport Art Fest has to offer. A special Kid’s area has been designed with interactive games and activities that will make for an unforgettable time.
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. Admission is free.
Southport Art Fest is produced and managed by StarEvents.
