Hot Jams and Cold Brews. Dancing in the Street highlights West Town's growing beer scene with live music, dancing, local food vendors and makers, plus a vast selection of craft beer from the Chicago Brewing District.

Dancing In The Streets is the name of the event, and also a popular Grateful Dead song. The event dates were chosen specifically to coincide with the “Days Between” which is the name of the week celebrating the memory of Jerry Garcia between August 1st, Jerry Garcia’s birthday, and August 9th, the date that Garcia passed away.
