Wicker Park Bucktown Special Service Area #33

WPB. It’s our name and the name of the community we serve. It is where we live and what we live for. We help make this hood happen. WPB works when we grease the gears of commerce. It flourishes when we promote its arts. It stays beautiful because we keep it clean. Our culture thrives with our celebration of it. We are the forum to hear its voice. We are the volunteers who serve it. More importantly, we are it.

Installations can include multiple structures but each one may be no larger than 400 square feet and 12’ tall. Applicants must curate and manage all programming and/or installation for their designated space for the duration of the festival.
