Friday August 6th – Sunday, August 8th
Returning this year, Chicago Brewing District’s Dancing in the Streets features live jam bands, local makers and artisans, food, family activities and craft beer from the Chicago Brewing District brewers including Big Drop Brewing Co., Finch Beer Co., Forbidden Root, Goose Island Beer Co., Great Central Brewing Company, Midwest Coast Brewing, and On Tour Brewing Company.
Dancing In the Streets is the name of the event, and also a popular Grateful Dead song. Touring bluegrass and jam bands booked by On Tour Brewing are featured all weekend. The event dates were chosen specifically to coincide with the “Days Between” which is the name of the week between August 1st, Jerry Garcia’s birthday, and August 9th, the date that Garcia passed away. That week is known as the “Days Between” in celebration and in memory of Jerry Garcia.
There is a suggested $10 donation to attend the event and a percentage of the proceeds will benefit the West Town Chamber of Commerce.
