Artisan Fair

Carefully curated artists from Chicagoland and as far as New York will be present to provide a unique shopping experience of the natural, mystical, and magical.

Fae Costumes

Like a renfaire for the fae folk, attendees are encouraged to dress like elves, satyrs, wood nymphs, goblins, brownies, etc. Leaf wreaths, pointy ears, or a pair of horns fit right in... but that doesn't mean we don't like the odd-one out, wear that StarCraft Cosplay if you want, we will love you for it. The Goat Queen and her flock of fae will be a spectacle on hand to greet you.

Live Goats

Contrary to some beliefs, there will be no eating of goats. But there will be live goats abound from 2-6PM. Have a beer, pet a baby goat. Blow kisses at the goats. Cast goat spells. Tell goat stories. 

Entertainment of unusual style

Rogue Wrestling Entertainment (RWE) will be setting up their ring and throwing bodies in a visceral cosmic battle for their soft debut. Part 1 of the Goat Queen Invitational begins at 3pm culminating in Part 2 at 5PM that concludes with the Goat Queen Eliminator Brawl

Wandering Wizard

What's a beer n' goat fest without some real wizardry? Wandering Wizard Norman Basile will be out and about performing street magic in broad daylight up close and personal right before your eyes.

Food Vendors

Get ready to indulge your taste buds with an eclectic selection of incredible eats:

Reina del Pozole - Latin comfort food that includes their award-winning Pozole verde and traditional dishes such as Pollo Guisado, arroz con gandules, and more. Latina- owned.

Jade Court Hyde Park - Chicago's best Chinese cuisine. Woman-owned, Let's Talk Womxn Ambassador.

Juancho’s Tacos - The best traditional Mexican food in the area!

Cinnaholic - Enchanting cinnamon rolls, desserts and cookies to satisfy your sweet cravings. Vegan and GF options

SteMartaen - We do flavor. Artisan vegan food gods!

Geeky Goodies Bakery and Confections - Give your sweet tooth what it wants with these pillowy clouds of heaven.

Exotic Arts

7PM is the cutoff time for the under-18 crowd for good reason. The art continues with a more exotic flavor, including burlesque. We're not going to kick folks out, but we want everyone to understand the plan here.


Edgy, magical, fiery, and bizarre performances from International burlesque artists Red Hot Annie & Kristijona! Performers will be available for photos.

Fire Dance Ritual

As it gets darker, out come the flames. Those who have attended Goat Queen before know the beat will thump, the sky will shout, the fire will alight and bounce through the air all to culminate in the vaporization of our burdens.
