Open Your Space to the Ravenswood ArtWalk!

Each September the Ravenswood ArtWalk kicks off fall with a weekend-long celebration that’s part open house, part studio crawl, and part street festival! Over 300 artists and artisans display their work across open galleries, small businesses, artist studios, industrial spaces, and an outdoor artist market. Entertainment includes live music, pop-up performances, a children’s corner featuring all-ages art activities and performances, as well as an urban craft beer garden and food truck roundup. Over 10,000 visitors join us each year to explore the festival’s 50 venues, experiencing a weekend of art, music, food and community. We are excited to build on last year’s programming as we make every effort to engage the many groups who visit, live, and work in Ravenswood.
