Artifact Events Bldg. - 4325 N. Ravenswood, Chicago
The Artifact Events Bldg. & Courtyard is a beautiful backdrop for an artisan market located in Chicago’s Historic Ravenswood neighborhood. Ravenswood is located on the “North Side” of the city of Chicago, Illinois. It is mostly situated in the Lincoln Square community area, with the portion east of Ravenswood Avenue and the Chicago & Northwestern/Union Pacific North Line railroad tracks being situated in the Uptown community area.
Ravenswood was founded in 1868 as an exclusive commuter suburb by a group of real-estate speculators. These speculators formed the Ravenswood Land Company and purchased 194 acres of farmland and woods eight miles north of Chicago. The woods supported a population of ravens. Ravenswood is known for its courtyard-style residential buildings.
Our event space in Ravenswood is a unique combination of exposed brick walls, wood floors, high ceilings, an open atrium, and both natural & supplemental lighting. The bonus is a treasure trove of architectural artifacts that give the place its distinctive feel. While the market is mostly INDOORS, the indoor space also opens to a “The Courtyard” outside (a popular wedding spot featuring 6 Roman columns) with more vendors and picturesque outdoor seating.
