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:
Dancing in the Streets will also feature West Town brewer
The event features a robust craft beer menu curated by the local brewers, plus sangria, vodka lemonade, 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 providing live art making and print making onsite. Altitude Chicago will have an area with activities for families, including small trampolines, spin wheel, and connect four games. Click here for a list of participating retail vendors, food trucks, and sponsors. 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 free fun family activities onsite such as trampolines and games, plus t-shirt tie-dying (for a donation to Bear Necessities) by d'aprile properties. Canine Crews will feature doggie bandana tie dying and dog activities, plus vendor See Spot Run will have fun supplies and swag for your pets.
