And food will be available from Northman Cider, Carbon Arc Bar & Board and Hilary’s Cookies. 

The event’s vendors will be tented.

The event is being organized by the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce. Proceeds will benefit the Illinois LINK food benefit program at the Lincoln Square Farmers Market and the Lincoln Square PaintWorks artist program.

Normally the event is hosted at DANK Haus, but it was moved outside this year to reduce the risk of COVID-19 while still bringing foot traffic to the Lincoln Avenue commercial corridor during the slower winter, said Rudy Flores, the chamber’s executive director.
