Going Dutch Festival

The Going Dutch Festival is a celebration of female and nonbinary voices in the arts.

For years, Going Dutch has been inclusive of nonbinary artists, both as applicants and within the context the creative groups involved in the festival. However, this support had not yet made it into our mission, nor our committee, but we are now doing just that. The 13th Going Dutch Festival will be our first celebration of female and nonbinary voices in the arts. From the beginning, GD was about providing a platform for underrepresented artists, we honor that this term extends well beyond those who identify as female, and, in our current home of Elgin, IL, know that both female and nonbinary artists deserve this platform and support.

The Going Dutch Festival is produced by Side Street Studio Arts with support from the Elgin Cultural Arts Commission.
