Components: ? National music headliners on Mainstage produced by Empty Bottle Productions ? DJ Stage produced by BassByThePound ? KidFest ? PetFest ? More than 80 food and merchandise vendorsWest Fest- local's the thing! If there is a street festival in Chicago that accurately reflects its surrounding community- West Fest would be it. ?Urban sophistication? is the watch phrase to describe this colorful, eclectic and lively event. West Fest is a two-day party that offers continuous high quality entertainment for kids, parents, young singles, and even pets. And just like the community it celebrates, there is nothing cookie-cutter about West Fest. Each element of the festival contains a local, home-grown element. For starters- the music is produced by Empty Bottle Productions, a fact that guarantees a musical line-up that will thoroughly satisfy even the most cutting-edge of musical tastes ?and one that will rival any festival in the city for sheer quality and imagination. In addition to the Empty Bottle Mainstage- there is a DJ Stage- produced by BassByThePound- possibly the world's finest drum n? bass DJ crew. Both stages are packed from the moment the festival opens until the last notes are played. Word about West Fest's high quality music program has quickly spread-drawing attendees from all over the region and puts this festival on track to achieve legendary status. The festival's emphasis on ?local? and ?unique? is underscored by the variety of more than 80 neighborhood artists, restaurants and shops that set up booths to offer the best of West Town food and merchandise. Attendees from outside the area get a real sampling of all the treasures that this neighborhood has to offer. Kids, pets and charity?. Just as West Fest enjoys it's reputation for high quality, cutting edge musical entertainment, West Fest is also known, a bit incongruously, for its Kid Fest, a fest within a fest that offers a stage with continuous live kid-centric entertainment, pony rides, a petting zoo, bounce houses, face painting and more. Other elements of West Fest that have become hugely popular are PetFest and PUPFest. These two ?fests within a fest? focus on urban pets. PetFest offers pet product vendors, canine bathing, and lots of pet activities with proceeds going to charity. PUPFest (Protecting Urban Pets) is run by West Town's own Doggy Style Pet Shop. PUPFest offers focuses on keeping the urban pet healthy, safe and happy. Proceeds benefit animal charities.Chicago's West Town The tightly knit, fast growing, eclectic West Town is a near perfect example of how a 21st century urban neighborhood can be a truly great place to put down roots -not only for young singles, but for young families too. The neighborhood is teeming with an eclectic assortment of unique furniture, art, clothing, home design and garden shops augmented by home-grown coffee shops, pubs and boutique restaurants. Everything is a short walking distance from playgrounds and parks giving both young singles and families just the right balance of urban stimulation and play. The word ?eclectic? barely does this neighborhood justice.
