Iconic. Trailblazing. Inspirational. And bursting with creativity. The early summer street extravaganza that is the Wells Street Art Festival returns for its 43rd year to the eponymous strip of Wells Street between North Avenue and Division in Chicago's historic Old Town neighborhood.

An eclectic mix of juried art. The tasty cuisine of neighborhood restaurants. A breezy music stage lineup. And activities for kids and families are just a few of many highlights of this post-Memorial Day celebration of art in nearly a dozen mediums that features the eye-catching handiwork of more than 200 creative individuals from Chicago, the Midwest and beyond.

Festival proceeds benefit the Old Town Merchants & Residents Association.
