Dancing In The Streets is the brain child of On Tour Brewing Company founder, and major jam band fan, Mark Legenza. 
The West Town Chamber of Commerce (WTCC) works with On Tour Brewing and the Chicago Brewing District to produce this one of a kind craft beer and live music event on Hubbard Street in West Town!

West Town and the Kinzie Industrial Corridor are home to a number of craft brewers who have formed the Chicago Brewing District including: 

All Rise Brewing Company
Around the Bend Beer Company
Burnt City Brewing
Finch Beer Company
Goose Island Beer Company
Great Central Brewing Company
On Tour Brewing Company

Dancing in the Streets will also feature West Town brewer

Forbidden Root.


The event features a robust craft beer menu curated by the local brewers, plus wine, spirits, and Boxed Water. Dancing in the Streets also showcases local artists, retailers, corporate sponsors; and Industrial Corridor makers such as Fulton Street Collective and Spudnik Press doing  live art making and print making onsite. Altitude Chicago will be providing activities for families, including small trampolines, spin wheel, and connect four games.  Food trucks 5411 Empanadas, Carnivale, Soul Kantina, and Donermen will be serving up their fare at the event, plus food vendor favorites Cevapcici and Rancho Mateo. There will be plenty of picnic table and umbrella seating to enjoy the food and drink while taking in the the music.

Dancing In The Streets is the name of the event, and also a popular Grateful Dead song. Touring blue grass and jam bands booked by On Tour Brewing are featured all weekend.
Click here for the complete live music line up. The event dates were chosen specifically to coincide with the “Days Between” which is the name of the week between August 1st, Jerry Garcia’s birthday, and August 9th, the date that Garcia passed away. That week is known as the “Days Between” in celebration and in memory of Jerry Garcia.

Dancing In The Streets has a unique appeal, craft beer lovers and jam band fans looking for a laid back street festival vibe, with great live music and superb craft beer attend the event.  The street festival is also kid and pet friendly, with family activities onsite such as trampolines, games, t-shirt and doggie bandana tie-dying, and much more.


There is an optional $5 donation to attend and a  percentage of the proceeds will benefit local non-profits the West Town Chamber of Commerce, The Arts of Life, and Chicago Neighbors United.
