West Town Chamber of Commerce is proud to present Design Harvest, a unique annual street festival for Chicago. This one of a kind fest features Chicago's best local furniture and home accessory makers, vintage and antique collectors, and local retailers of home design.
Between perusing a curated exhibit of design vendors, fest-goers can partake in art making activities, paint a pumpkin and raise money for a local elementary school, take a family hay ride, or enjoy a cold beer and delicious food. Sponsor Christy Webber Landscapes Farm & Garden Center will be providing the hay rides from Design Harvest to their Farm & Garden Center and back between 11am and 4pm. The Farm & Garden Center will feature additional family activities including a hay maze, face painting, scare crow making, petting zoo (between 12-4pm), and more.
Helping set the mood is the live musical entertainment area, programmed by Chicago’s legendary live music venue, The Hideout. Don't miss the big square dance in the street Saturday afternoon at 2:5pm with the Golden Horse Ranch Band! Beer sponsor Blue Moon will feature their Harvest Pumpkin Ale along with Crispin Cider and Coors Light. This year's wine sponsor Naked Grape will be sampling and the event will sell wine by the glass.
A rain or shine event, design vendors are housed under very large tents which also shelters patrons. Patio heaters warm our lounge areas so once the sun sets imbibers can grab a seat on a hay bale, get cozy and stay a while!
The 2013 event also features a fine art annex throughout the event and after party at EuroFurniture 2145 W. Grand from 8pm-Midnight Saturday, September 28th sponsored by our media partner Chicago Magazine and Chicago Home and Garden and featuring the East of Edens Soul Express DJs. All welcome!
