MAAF 2014 Was A Huge Success!

June 27th, 28th and 29th the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival's 6th year took place between Kedzie and Kimball Avenues and was a blast for all. With food, vendors, live music and of course, art! Save for a quick thunderstorm on Saturday we had beautiful weather and a great crowd. The Family Fun Tent had activities for the whole family including button making and a petting zoo. We had amazing local and out of town bands rocking well into the evening all three nights. Our amazing artists took to their vacant store fronts and transformed them into amazing galleries with exhibits that were out of this world. We had such a wonderful weekend and we can't wait to do it again for you all next year!
