Notice to Milwaukee Ave. Residents Regarding Wicker Park Fest 2012


The festival site on Milwaukee Avenue has been extended this year from North Avenue to Paulina Street and will take place this weekend, July 28th & 29th. Voted one of the best neighborhood festivals for the great music, food, and vendors, we expect this year’s fest to attract upwards of 60,000 attendees over the weekend. The Fest will also include a great KIDS area at Wood/Milwaukee and two fabulous arts areas featuring the work of local artists with Defibrillator Performance Art Gallery & Redmoon Theater.

Some Important Points:

1. Street Closure: Milwaukee Ave, between North and Paulina, and some intersecting streets (see list below), will be closed to all vehicular traffic and street parking starting at 1:00am on Saturday, July 28th. Any cars left on the street after 1:00AM on July 28th will be towed at owner’s expense. The street will re-open on Monday, July 30th after 5am. Please be sure to make other arrangements for parking during the weekend.  These portions of the streets that intersect with Milwaukee will also be closed:
    • Hermitage Street, SW from Milwaukee to alley
    • Wood Street, SW from Milwaukee to alley 
    • Wolcott Street, SW from Milwaukee to alley
    • Wood Street, N from Milwaukee to Beach
    • Evergreen Street, SW from Milwaukee to Wicker Park Avenue
    • Honore Street, NE from Milwaukee to Elk Grove
    • Honore Street, SW from Milwaukee to Wicker Park Avenue

2. Access during the Fest: You can still enter the street and your home/apartment without making a donation at the gates (suggested $5 donation), however we encourage donations for all attendees of the festival as they benefit local economic development, schools and non-profit organizations.
