The West Town Art Walk is an annual event celebrating art in all forms—visual, musical, culinary, and otherwise—within shops along Chicago Avenue (between Milwaukee Ave and Hoyne Ave) and Ashland Avenue (between Chicago Ave and Division St).
During this Friday & Saturday event, attendees can enjoy visual art, music, and fashion from Chicago artists all showcased within West Town’s shops, businesses, restaurants, and bars. Admission is free.
The 6th Annual West Town Art Walk will be in conjunction with the West Town Food Truck Social, happening on Noble St between Chicago and Chestnut. We're encouraging participants to Snack-N-Stroll through West Town! The Art Walk will be featuring Art in the Park in Eckhart Park again this year with family friendly events happening on Saturday from 1pm to 4pm, including live performances by ChiME (Chicago Center for Music Education). The fences along Eckhart Park will feature Live Art Making curated by Joshua Gilley. An Art Car Show will be featured on Chicago Ave between Paulina and Wood, and chalk drawing activities will be available throughout the district. Specific retailers will host beer tastings, and if you visit at least 15 spots on the map you are qualified to enter the West Town Art Walk raffle!
Established in 2011, the West Town Art Walk is an annual event organized by West Town business owners to celebrate our diverse community of businesses while highlighting Chicago artists. Our mission is to showcase West Town as a rich cultural hub that has much to offer residents and business owners alike.
