Rogers Park’s Flatts & Sharpe Music Shop Hosting 2nd Street Fest And Concert Saturday

Flatts & Sharpe Music Company will hold its second music festival Saturday in Rogers Park.

The Flatts & Sharpe Music Festival will take place noon-10 p.m. Saturday on Columbia Avenue east of Sheridan Road. The event will include a full day of music performances plus 10 vendors, with musical acts and vendors being from the neighborhood. There will be a $10 suggested donation at the door.

Flatts & Sharpe, 6749 N. Sheridan Road, has been around since 1976, but it held its first music festival in 2019. Owner Chris Bell had previous experience putting on “world music festivals” in the area and decided to host a similar event for her music shop.

“There’s so many amazing musicians here,” Bell said. “As a music store, we have access to a lot them. I said, ‘We’re a music shop, let’s get some rock-and-roll in the streets.’”

Flatts & Sharpe is joining with Oasis Tavern to be the beverage provider for the fest. There isn’t a food vendor at the fest, so attendees are encouraged to patronize local eateries on Sheridan, Bell said.
