Thirsty Ears Festival
Thirsty Ears is Chicago’s only classical music street festival. For two days we close Wilson Ave. between Ravenswood and Hermitage for two days of stellar performances, craft beer from Dovetail, food from Urban Tables, community vendors and kid-friendly activities and performances both days.
The festival goes from 2:00 to 10:00 each day and will include a special reprise of several of our favorite films from the 2022 Sound of Silent Film Festival performed at sundown on Saturday. It’s free with a suggested $10 donation.
