Art enthusiasts are guaranteed to find plenty of inspiration when the summer showcase that is the Wells Street Art Festival celebrates its 44th year. Held on the eponymous strip of Wells Street between North Avenue and Division in Chicago’s historic Old Town neighborhood, it’s a treasure trove of creativity and much more.

For starters, there’s the eclectic mix of 200-plus juried artists. Then there’s tasty food from the neighborhood’s unique restaurants. There’s also cool music stage acts as well as kids’ art activities.

This post-Memorial Day celebration of art (and one of Chicago’s first warm-weather summer fests) features handiwork in nearly a dozen mediums from individuals hailing from both the Midwest and beyond.

Fest proceeds will again benefit the programs and services of the Old Town Merchants & Residents Association.
