Square Roots

Our Festival

Each year the Square Roots Festival brings over 30,000 festival goers to Lincoln Square to enjoy the local food, beer, and live music, helping to support local businesses and strengthen our community.

Our Mission

Help keep small businesses thriving and support two local non-profits with your purchase of food, beer, and artisan packages or make a donation of your choice! Your support is critical and much appreciated.

Your Donation Matters

Just like at the festival gate, all proceeds directly support the small businesses participating and include a donation to Old Town School Of Folk Music’s financial aid programs and the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber Of Commerce farmers markets, small business programs, and neighborhood beautification projects.

We Want To Return!

Square Roots wants to return to the street when it's safe to bring you a fantastic summer festival experience. Your financial support this year ensures the small business, brewery, restaurant, and artist community can continue to operate during this unprecedented time.
