The Lakeview East Festival of the Arts is Chicago's premier fine art and fine craft festival showcasing over 170 juried artists. Lakeview is located on the north side of Chicago, near Wrigley Field, north Halsted and Lincoln Park in a very diverse, culturally rich community with unique boutique stores, cafes and restaurants.
The Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce has hosted this event for the past seven years. More than 40,000 attendees are expected to attend this year's festival. The festival is set on Broadway Avenue just north of Belmont Avenue.
This festival has a strong marketing and media plan and hosts an annual artist reception. Other amenities include artist reserved parking, Saturday night Artist Party, and a full breakfast served Saturday and Sunday.
The event was founded in 2005 by the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce. This festival is produced by the Chamber of Commerce with recruitment of artists from EM Events, an event planning company founded by Erin Melloy.
