Artfest Michigan Avenue is back! Launched in the summer of 2015 by Amdur Productions, the three-day art fest has quickly become one of the city’s most popular events! With over 100-juried artists in a variety of mediums, the festival takes place on Chicago’s world-famous Michigan Avenue at the base of the iconic Chicago Tribune building, next to the new Apple store. Overlooking the Chicago River, attendees can enjoy the city’s magnificent landscape while viewing the work of some of the country’s most talented artists. Artist demonstrations, interactive art projects, activities for kids, and live music make Artfest Michigan Avenue a wonderful experience for the entire family. The festival takes place July 21-23, from 10 am to 5 pm each day. Admission is free.
