You can thank Jessica Reed, Claire McInerny, Holland Colvin, Jamey Brooks,  Garrett Poortinga, Chelsea Sanders and Jess Levandoski for incubating this little festival all the way back in 2013 in Bloomington, Indiana. Jess Levandoski (Jlev for brevity) now runs the festival in Chicago with a brand new team for year 5 and BEYOND!
