Editorial Review of Bucktown Arts Fest

Date: August 28-29, 2010

Cost: Free

Organizer: Bucktown Arts Fest Committee

What to expect: Art, poetry, music, theater, dance and film in what used to be an artists' community.

Why to go: Fight the (gentrification) powers that be with a hearty roster of local bands, art, performances and local food. Check the website for the full schedule.

Additional info: The event has drawn upwards of 30,000 people to the Senior Citizens Park (at the corner of Oakley and Lyndale) in recent years. Not just because it takes place in a park is this event grassroots; unlike many such fairs in the city, put on by commercial production companies, volunteers proudly run the fun.
