Music and art to return to the streets of Berwyn this July

June 28, 2013 by  

The 3rd annual Music, Art and Vintage in the Street festival is taking place this July in Berwyn and is a presentation of the Historic Depot District Special Events Committee of the Berwyn Development Corporation.

Over 20 artisans will be showcasing and selling their works during the day, with those taking part having been chosen by the Berwyn Arts Council. Commercial and food vendors will also be hosting booths at the festival.

The public will be able to have their antiques appraised at the Vintage Market for $3 for each piece, although this does not include jewelry and fine art. All proceeds will go to the Berwyn Scholars for Dollars program. There will also be entertainment from bands such as Underbelly and Why Not?, as well as dance performances from local groups.

Commercial vendors can rent space for $40, while artisans pay $50. Food vendors will be charged $100 if they are Berwyn Development Corporation members or $125 for non-members. It is likely vendors will come from all over the area, including such areas as nearby Morton Grove, to showcase and sell their items. Many of them will probably be contacting local printing companies to help them prepare with items such as signs, banners, and business cards.

The Music, Art and Vintage in the Street festival will take place in the Depot District in Berwyn on July 21 from 12:00 – 7:00 pm. Admission is free and dogs are welcome. For more information, call 708-788-8100.
