Come enjoy a free outdoors festival filled with awesome artwork, live music and delicious local bites!

 

 

The Millennium Art Festival is returning to downtown Chicago’s Michigan Avenue for the fifth consecutive year. Located at Michigan Avenue and Lake Street, the Millennium Art Festival, held by Amdur Productions, offers original artwork from more than 130 acclaimed artists. Artwork of every medium, including ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, sculpture, mixed media, painting, drawing, photography, wood and furniture, will be featured at this three-day festival.

 

Looking for fun, and creative, activities for the whole family this weekend? Take a spin on the Spin Art Machine and create your very own masterpiece of spiraled and splashes of paint! Or pick up a paintbrush and make your artistic mark on the 16-foot long, four-foot high Graffiti Wall.

 

Aside from all the artwork, festival visitors will also enjoy live music from Cirrus Falcon and Mark Adamczyk and tasty local fare from neighboring restaurants!

 

You can easily spend your entire afternoon downtown! Nearby (and not to mention famous) Chicago attractions include the internationally acclaimed Art Institute, Millennium Park’s interactive water sculptures and of course, “The Bean.”

 

Take yourself on an artistic adventure this weekend! Visit the Millennium Art Festival!
