Saturday September 5th & Sunday September 6th
It’s historic. It’s a Chicago and U.S. landmark. And now the Motor Row District on Chicago’s near south side will be home to the inaugural (and very 21st century) “Motor Row Craft Beer & Wine Fest” on the Saturday and Sunday of this year’s Labor Day weekend.
Built between 1905 and 1936 and featuring unique architecture that housed car showrooms and repair shops, the Motor Row District catered to Americans’ then-newfound love of the automobile. The fabled district was comprised of several blocks of South Michigan, Indiana and Wabash Avenues just west of McCormick Place. Today it’s a gentrifying neighborhood that’s also home to at least three of Chicago’s hottest new craft breweries.
At Motor Row Craft Beer & Wine Fest, in addition to its historic South Wabash location, visitors will be able to buy tasting passes to sample both microbrews and wines as well as purchase blended cocktails. In other words: there will be something for every taste! And, being a Chicago street fest, there will also be plenty of food, live music, arts & crafts and more.
