Adams Avenue Unplugged takes place the weekend of April 25 and 26, along a two-mile stretch of Adams Avenue, from University Heights on the West through Normal Heights, and into parts of Kensington to the East. The event will feature 150 live musical performances staged inside restaurants, bars, coffee houses and galleries lining the neighborhood and on four community stages evenly spread out throughout the district. Being able to pair the Avenue's unique dining and drinking establishments, each with their own special ambiances and selections, with free musical performances, makes Adams Avenue the place to be on the last weekend of April. The AABA hopes to treat musical aficionados and foodies to the rich neighborhood culture.

Music is scheduled from 12pm to 10pm on Saturday, April 25, and 12pm to 7pm on Sunday, April 26. Some artists will be playing multiple sets allowing attendees more opportunity to catch their favorite performers. 

Adams Avenue Unplugged is free and open to the general public.

The free trolley service will be provided on Adams Avenue during the festival to subsidize the walking required to traverse the expansive event footprint. Parking is limited to residential neighborhood streets and can get quite congested. MTS bus routes 2 & 11 will service the neighborhoods. Wear comfortable walking shoes and plan on getting your exercise by exploring all the avenue has to offer.
