2019 Registrations Sold Out
Spaces on EventBrite have sold out. We will be in touch with details and updates as the event gets closer for those who are registered.
As you know, this was the first year for online registration. We have heard from a few people that there were hiccups with the process. If you have contacted us via email, we will be in touch soon.
There will be additional spaces available for walk-ups the day of the festival.
And there are usually some no-shows, so there are still chances to get a space if you would like to paint. We will have a process for this posted soon. Typically, we take a waiting list day of the festival and you must be present at 9am to be awarded a space. No-show spaces are released at Noon.
Questions about Registration should be directed to email@example.com
About the Artists of the Wall Festival
Every summer over Father’s Day weekend in Loyola Park, neighbors of all ages and backgrounds come together to collaborate on a 600-foot mural along the lakefront between Farwell and Morse Avenues. The artists finished works remain until May of the following the year when the wall is again prepped, whitewashed and readied for the next round of eager participants.
Catch free, live music on the Windform Music Stage from noon to 5:30 each afternoon at the south end of the wall. The festival is coordinated by the all-volunteer Loyola Park Advisory Council.
The Artists of the Wall Festival initially began as a response to gangs who would continually graffiti the 600-foot sea wall to the point where the park district couldn’t keep up maintenance. Since its inception in 1993, this beloved fest has become a true celebration of community, creativity, and music for everyone enjoy.
