to Aug 20

Pilsen Fest 2018

PILSEN FEST aims to expose the Latino community to the deep pool of cultural talent that exists in the Pilsen neighborhood and the Chicago metropolitan area, including musicians, chefs, mixologists, poets, muralists, painters, writers, documentarians, and photographers. Pilsen Fest partners with El BeiSMan — a bilingual digital magazine — whose mission is to promote cultural literacy within the diverse Latino/Mexican community. Along with the Pilsen Book and Humanities Festival, the PILSEN FEST and El BeiSMan are working to preserve Pilsen’s historic legacy of being the center of a diverse Latino/Mexican cultural production in the Chicago metropolitan area.

The PILSEN FEST uses music, theatre, poetry, food culture, handcrafts, educational seminars, and the arts as a means of promoting and preserving Pilsen’s rich cultural heritage. Recognizing the historic and cultural value that the Pilsen neighborhood holds for Latino/Mexican Chicago, the Pilsen Fest uses the arts to expose Chicago to the local and national artistic talents and to embrace the history and community pride that Pilsen represents for the diversity of Chicago as a global city.

*LargoMade
~Ryan Largo is a Berwyn based leather craftsman that makes one of a kind wallets, purses, flasks, mason mugs, wall hangers and other assorted leather goods. LargoMade merges classic leather craft with the classic imagery from Americana, traditional tattoo flash design and backstreet grafitti to create heirloom quality usable and enjoyable keepsakes. All items are hand tooled, dyed and sewn from bare American produced veg tanned leather. 

*Mojo Owl
~A night-owl that loves making jewelry with raw gem stones. Just like each of Mojo Owl’s creations, each raw gem is one of a kind. Treat yourself or a loved one to some beautiful Mojo.

*Soulscape Tarot Card readings with Deidre Como
