Rogers Park is counting down until its 9th Annual Glenwood Arts festival! This year’s free event will feature 100+ artists, open studio walk, food, drinks, music and live entertainment on three outdoor stages all within the Glenwood Avenue Arts District. The kick-off begins Friday August 20 at 6pm and will feature Belly-dancing and Fire-dancing performances, and The New Iberians, a Blues and Zydeco band from Portland Oregon. The festival lasts all weekend with local vendors and shops. It also features an eclectic mix of entertainment: Blues, Rock, Jazz, Hip Hop, World Music, Poetry, Drumming, Break Dancing, kids’ performances and more.
“The Glenwood Arts Festival has always been a lot of fun, it’s great to be able to eat a delicious slice of pizza, get a henna tattoo, dance to the blues and have your fortune read all at the same time! The festival really shows the eclectic spirit of Rogers Park,” says Rogers Park resident April Link.
The festival showcases the Rogers Park neighborhood, which invites you to share in the community: meet local artists, buy local food, enjoy a whole weekend of music and pick up a one of a kind item created by local artists.
The 9th annual Festival takes place on Friday August 20 till Sunday August 22, from 12:00pm to 9pm, with after hour events planned around the neighborhood. The festival is located in the Glenwood Arts District at Glenwood and Morse, take the red line and get off at the Morse stop.
