Bucktown, Logan Square and Wicker Park are just a few of Chicago’s neighborhoods known for their appreciation and love for the arts.
To celebrate and cultivate that love, Bucktown Arts was born. This non-profit provides arts and education programs in the Bucktown area and is also responsible for creating the Bucktown Arts Fest, a beautiful two-day festival that’s held each summer in Senior Citizens Memorial Park. This sweet little park across the street from Holstein Park is perfect for art shows, and you’ll find it at 2228 North Oakley Street.
This year, the festival will be held on August 24th and 25th from 11am-7pm. It will showcase almost 200 artists, live music performances, poetry, theatre, dance, and activities for the kiddos.
Lucky for those that live at wonderful Renaissance West, the festival is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. It’s a few streets to the east of us. No excuse to not have fun while the festival is going on!
There is always something fun and exciting happening in Logan Square and its surrounding neighborhoods. If you’re wondering why that is, well let’s take a look…
According to Curbed.com, Logan Square is one of the “hottest nabes” in the United States. Their December 2012 Curbed Cup showcased Logan Square as a quarterfinalist in the city competition. We think you’ll find it interesting reading.
Curbed says that some of the neighborhood’s many appealing factors include “wide park-like boulevards, a unique mix of housing types, public transportation, bike and walking paths, progressive local shops and a really cool vibe. The convenience of two Logan Square blue line stops makes it a destination for those wanting to get more for their money.”
But the writer forgot to mention the festivals, the fun, and the neighborhood associations like LSNA that unite the community and are invested in its growth and development. Renaissance West is proud to be a part of the betterment of this community.
