9th Annual Glenwood Avenue Arts Festival August 21 and 22

The Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest (GAAF) is a free, weekend-long arts festival that features 100+ artists, open studios, and live entertainment on three outdoor stages.  Experience art of all disciplines, music, theater, food and drink on the cobblestone streets of the Glenwood Avenue Arts District in Chicago’s historic Rogers Park neighborhood.

(Note: the 10th annual festival will be held  August 20 and 21, 2011.  Find out more here: http://chilaborart.wordpress.com/2011/01/22/events-calendar/ )



The 9th annual Fest takes place the weekend of August 21 & 22, 2010. There will be a kickoff party on Friday night with the artists’ market on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from noon to 9pm.

As we have for the past 4 years, the Chicago Labor & Arts Festival will have a booth at the festival selling tee shirts and new and used books.  Our book prices are extraordinarily LOW ($1 and up, buy three books get one free!) and the variety of stuff we have varies from dictionaries of all types to poetry, fiction, drama and art to history and politics to Marxist classics.

In addition to CLAF, Diana Berek and more than 100 local artists  will be showing and selling their work, while dozens of food vendors will have tasty victuals available.  And more than 40 bands will be performing on 3 stages!  Unlike other neighborhood festivals NO ONE WILL PRESSURE YOU FOR A DONATION TO COME IN!  It is FREE!

So come on out!
