Street Fair Coming To Uptown In August

Uptown's going to have what looks to be a huge street fair on August 16 & 17. Clark Street from Lawrence to Leland will be closed to traffic and dedicated to "The Raven." If you want to get involved, they're seeking sponsors, local food vendors and volunteers.
If you've got a favorite Uptown restaurant or shop, please talk to the owner and see if he or she is interested in getting involved. This is a great way to publicize local businesses to the 20,000 people who are expected to attend.

In an effort to rebuild their local playground, the Chase Park Advisory Council and the community are launching the north side’s newest festival. Highlighting their community and the neighboring communities, The Raven will feature local restaurants, showcase local artisans/vendors and include neighborhood non-profits with two stages of live music all weekend long. A huge kids area will be held inside the park with pony rides, inflatables, a kids stage and much, much more. The Raven will benefit Chase Park by providing funds to build a new playground and replace existing equipment. For more information about participating as a sponsor or vendor, please visit www.RavenChicago.com or call Big Buzz Idea Group at 847.677.8273.


  1. This will be a full weekend with the air and water show going on at the same time. :)

  2. I hope they have good food. I like festival food.
