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:
All Rise Brewing Company
There is a robust craft beer menu curated by the local brewers, plus plenty of other beverage offerings. 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.
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 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, t-shirt and doggie bandana tie-dying.
There is an optional $5 donation to attend Chicago Brewing District's Dancing in the Streets and event proceeds will benefit local non-profits:
West Town Chamber of Commerce, The Arts of Life, and Chicago Neighbors United.
