Kenosha Creative Space Fest set for Saturday

Fundraiser supports the programming and operations of the nonprofit


Kenosha Creative Space is a nonprofit organization committed to creating economic opportunities for local artists, musicians, creatives, entrepreneurs and local partner organizations. The partner organizations and individual supporters share the goal of using their collective resources for the mutual benefit of the Kenosha Creative Space, the creative community and the community at large.

Kenosha Creative Space is hosting a daylong celebration of summer and Kenosha’s local creative talent on Saturday (July 17).

Kenosha Creative Space Fest will include live music, art vendors, family activities and more from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on the street in front of the Creative Space, 624 57th St. in Downtown Kenosha.

Kenosha Creative Space is located at 624 57th St.

Admission is free, although a $10-per-person donation would be greatly appreciated, said Kenosha Creative Space Executive Director Francisco Loyola. The event is a fundraiser to support the programming and operations of the nonprofit Kenosha Creative Space Inc.

“This is a block party with two purposes,” Loyola said. “The first is to showcase some of the great artistic and musical talent in our community. The second is to help support our continuing mission to provide a place for creatives in our community to hone their skills, to build their businesses and to share their works with all of us.”

  • 1 to 1:30 p.m.: Salamander

  • 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.: Toke Magic

  • 6:30 to 8 p.m.: Spirit Shakers
  • 8:30 to 10 p.m.: Indigo Canyon

An acoustic stage will feature Miss B Haven from 3 to 3:30 and 4:30 to 5 p.m., and Billy Famer from 6 to 6:30 and 8 to 8:30 p.m.

Art vendors will include Hot Mess Studios, Leah Jurgens, Nothing’s Wrong Here Studio, Dyes for Your Eyes, Lunar Garden Glass, Lissa Bujniewicz, Kelly Witte, Jill Zgorzelski, Hoop Star/Bakes Unicorn, Aaron Clutter and Jake’s Pen Art.
