Glenwood Arts fest this weekend

What: The Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest (GAAF) is a free, weekend-long event that features artists, open studios and live entertainment on three outdoor stages. Painting, fiber arts, jewelry, pottery and other art forms will be exhibited. Experience art, theater, music, as well as food and drink, on the cobblestone streets of the Glenwood Avenue Arts District in Chicago’s historic Rogers Park neighborhood.

NEW: Due to growth and popularity with artists and the public, the Fest expands onto Morse Avenue this year, accommodating more artists, adding a third stage and adding more KidFest activities.
