    Wells Street

    Iconic. Trailblazing. Inspirational. And bursting with creativity. The early summer street extravaganza that is the Wells Street Art Festival returns for its 41st year to the eponymous strip of Wells Street between North Avenue and Division in Chicago's historic Old Town neighborhood.

    An eclectic mix of juried art, tasty cuisine of neighborhood restaurants, a breezy music stage lineup, and activities for kids and families are just a few of many highlights of this post-Memorial Day celebration of art.

    The Spice House is located right in the heart of the action, so stop by for spices or just a quiet break in our shady back garden. For more information, including a list of participating artist and a schedule of performances, please visit the event's website.
