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: On Tour Brewing Company,  Burnt City Brewing, Around the Bend Beer Company, Goose Island, Finch Beer Co., Forbidden Root, Great Central Brewing Company, and All Rise Brewing Co.. The event features a craft beer menu curated by the local brewers plus sponsor wine and spirits. The WTCC also works with the Industrial Council of Nearwest Chicago (ICNC) to showcase Industrial Corridor artisans and makers; plus sponsors, food trucks, local retail and food vendors.

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. 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 with great live music and craft beer attend the event.  The event is also kid friendly, local non-profits and schools provide family activities onsite such as crafts, games, t-shirt tie-dying, and face painting. Dancing In The Streets offers sponsors a great opportunity for exposure and experiential marketing to a large and diverse crowd in a relaxed, friendly and unique urban Industrial Corridor environment.


There is an optional $5 donation to attend the event 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.
