Due to the large number of applications we've received, any artist applications submitted after June 1, 2023 will be added to our wait list. We hope to see you at the Glenwood Ave Arts Fest, August 18-20.

Located at the intersection of Glenwood and Morse avenues in Rogers Park’s Glenwood Avenue Arts District, The Glenwood Avenue Arts Festival (GAAF) is a free, weekend-long street festival featuring more than 120 visual artists, live arts demonstrations, open studios, entertainment on multiple stages, a Kids Fest activities area, and craft beer and food vendors representing neighborhood restaurants.

The weekend kicks off with The Cobblestone Jam music concert from 6-10 p.m. on Friday night, followed by the art fair on Saturday and Sunday.  Artist participation on Friday is optional; you're invited to have some fun before getting down to business on Saturday and Sunday.

All artwork available for sale must be designed and made by or under the direct supervision of the booth artist(s). 

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis in the order received.  Some categories fill more quickly than others so submit your application as early as possible. 

Accepted artists will receive an invoice for the mandatory $250 booth fee and any booth furnishings rented through GAAF. We do not charge an application fee.
