Vends + Vibes 2020: A Virtual Arts Marketplace



Arts + Public Life (APL) presents Vends + Vibes, a virtual arts marketplace and month-long celebration of unique handmade products made primarily by South Side artists and creative entrepreneurs. 2020 presents an opportunity for Vends + Vibes, now in its seventh year, to grow beyond the traditional two-day holiday marketplace that stretches across all of APL’s amenities on the Arts Block along historic Garfield Boulevard in Washington Park. 

This year, we’re shifting to a month-long, virtual platform in order to safely bring the same Vends + Vibes #HolidaySoul experience, complete with over 30 vendors, Chicago’s hottest DJs, special events, plus art-making, demos and family friendly activities.
