What it is: The Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest (GAAF) is a Chicago street festival with 100 artists, live bands and an art walk. Oh yeah, and it’s 100% totally absolutely FREE! You’ll be walking around brick laden streets in Rogers Park, hobnobbing with other high brow Chicagoans, enjoying the food and drinks from the vendors – in short: you’ll be on cloud nine. But remember, it’s August, so leave your black turtleneck at home!
