The Wicker Park Festival takes place on Saturday, July 26th and Sunday, July 27th, 2014, both days open from 12 noon to 10:00pm. The festival is located in the Bucktown area at Milwaukee & North ave. (to Paulina st.) in Chicago, IL. One of the best neighborhood street festivals in Chicago thanks to the help of presenting sponsors Coors Light and RedEye, along with other promotional and silver sponsorship participants. To sponsor, advertise, volunteer, become a member of the WPB Chamber of Commerce, or more information visit http://www.wickerparkbucktown.com/fest/the-neighborhood.

In 1837 the Wicker Park/ Bucktown area became part of Chicago. The Wicker brothers (Charles and Joel) bought and developed 80 acres of land in 1870. The brothers then donated 4 acres of land to the city of Chicago and the city created a lake in their park they had (then giving it the name Wicker Park). This Wicker Park/ Bucktown area was designated as a Chicago Landmark District in 1991.

For those that love holographs, don't miss the cool art on display by J. Bannon at the event called "Eye Candy". Canine lovers will be happy to hear their dogs are welcome to attend, but must be leashed and cleaned up after at all times during the fest. There are many activities to look forward to including: 3 stages of music, outside shopping, special food, creative arts, and entertainment. To see the music line-up schedule visit http://lineup.wickerparkbucktown.com.

Kids activities and entertainment include: face painting, lego robotics, crafts, micro origami, bounce house, nail painting, hair streaking, and more. A great place to spend time with family and friends, especially those who love music and art.
