Submission Guidelines

  • Submissions across all genres and styles of visual / performance art will be considered: everything from large-scale, physical installations to live performance art pieces (with bonus points for interactive projects!)
  • Your project will be outdoors and MUST be sturdy and safe enough to withstand exposure to the elements ~PLUS~ interactions with Festival crowds of all-ages (40,000+ attendees).
  • The Festival takes place at the heart of Logan Square, within the boundaries of Logan Blvd / Milwaukee Ave / Kedzie Blvd. For general reference, check out this site map .
  • There are no walls or infrastructure to display your work within the Festival grounds—be creative!
  • We fund the chosen project(s)—winners are responsible for the FULL creation & implementation: from pre-fest planning / construction, to the on-site installation / de-installation phases.
  • We can only consider proposals with budgets under $1,600. Our goal is to fund as many as we can, so please keep this in mind when determining your total project budget.
  • You’ll be asked to provide details and approximate dimensions of your concept’s total footprint. Any structural elements MUST be less than 400 sq ft total & under 12 ft tall. Amplified sound/music will not be permitted.
  • Artwork sales will not be permitted on-site. If you’d like the opportunity to sell your work at the Fest, please check out our artisan vendor application here .
