Lakeview East Festival of the Arts

The #1 Art Festival in Chicago is back this weekend!

Join us for a showcase of over 150 juried artists featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, furniture, jewelry, and more.  These original pieces are for sale in a wide range of price ranges. In addition to the art, the Festival has become a center of activity for the weekend with live demonstrations, entertainment stages, family activities, and a garden oasis.

For 15 years, the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce has presented one of the most unique and popular festivals in Chicagoland.  Every aspect, from artists, to musicians, to vendors, and everything in between is specifically selected by the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce in order to bring the best to the heart of Lakeview.

Visit the festival website for all information. Hope to see you there!

It has been an honor to bring fine art and performances to Lakeview East these past 15 years.  Here's to 15+ more.

To celebrate, we've gone local with Pastoral as our wine sponsor (also celebrating 15 years!), and DryHop as our beer sponsor.
