Since 2007 Do Division Street Fest has taken place on Division Street between Damen Avenue and Leavitt Street in West Town Chicago. Do Division features two live music stages, a wide variety of local retail and food vendors, plenty of ice cold beverages, a dedicated Family Fun Fest area; plus Do Fashion with local designer runway shows and DJs.
There is a suggested $10 donation to attend Do Division Street Fest. Proceeds benefit the West Town Chamber of Commerce (WTCC), a 501 C6 non-profit providing valuable programs and services for the small businesses in West Town Chicago.
Do Division features two live music stages programmed by renowned local live music venues: The Empty Bottle and Subterranean. Empty Bottle Presents books the talent for the east stage and is known for diverse, and cutting edge music. Empty Bottle was named “One of the best clubs in America” by Rolling Stone Magazine. Having talent programmed by Empty Bottle Presents assures that the event will feature current and high quality live music.
Subterranean programs the talent for the west stage. They also have a fantastic track record booking in demand acts for their local club. Subterranean’s reputation for featuring current and popular bands is outstanding, and their stage’s draw combined with that of the Empty Bottle Presents stage, guarantees huge crowds of diverse live music lovers at Do Division Street Fest.
West Town's Division Street between Ashland and Leavitt is a fashionable destination and is packed with independent small businesses.
The local retailers and boutiques participate in sidewalk sales during Do Division Street Fest, and also organize Do Fashion, an event within the street festival with a runway, prominent local DJs, and local fashion shows throughout the weekend.
Do Fashion is sponsored in part by Dynamic Salon.
