Grab a beret and chow down on a delicious crepe! Enjoy everything from free tours at historic Pleasant Home with tea on the porch, to wine tastings and even a poodle parade at Art dans la Rue!

Chow down on French food, dig the music, art, and of course, wine, in downtown Oak Park! Activities will include French lessons, wine tastings, and a poodle parade at this Chicago festival!

Art dans la Rue will be held downtown on Marion Street between Lake Avenue and North Boulevard and at Pleasant Home, 217 Home Avenue in Oak Park. Admission is free.

Pleasant Home is considered one of the earliest and most distinguished examples of Prairie School Architecture in the nation and is operated by the Pleasant Home Foundation as a living museum, which is open to the public and offers a year-round schedule of educational programs, community events and festivals and cultural performances. Pleasant Home was designed in 1897 by noted architect George W. Maher, a contemporary of world-renowned Prairie School architects Joseph Lyman Silsbee, Frank Lloyd Wright and George Grant Elmslie. The design of Pleasant Home broke with the traditional Queen Anne and colonial revival styles of most of the homes in Oak Park.
