Street Festival
2016 Thirsty Ears Festival

Thirsty Ears is Chicago's only classical music street festival. For two days we shut down Wilson Ave. between Ravenswood and Hermitage to feature performances by stellar ensembles and soloists, food trucks, local vendors, kid-friendly activities and craft beer from Empirical Brewing.

We need your help to make it happen! Volunteers will work two-hour shifts at the entrance booths, at the beer tent, stage or in Kidzone. Thirsty Ears attracts a great crowd and is a fun way to hear great music and meet interesting people.
