To all the road warriors, creative writers, and traveling artists, we got you!

Starving Artists

Creatives are a major part of Illegal Pete's from our customers, to our community, and our own crew. So we get that you probably need a break from the parking lots, the cramped van, and the dicey mystery eats. Illegal Pete's Starving Artists program is made for you.

What is Re:Fresh?

When RE:FRESH began in 2020, founder and president Pete Turner called upon local arts producer Annie Geimer (Artist Liaison at Meow Wolf) to assemble an artist team that could commemorate Illegal Pete's 25th Anniversary and address business improvements. Supporting the arts is a tradition: Nearly a century ago, emerging artist Grant Wood lived in the Turner family’s carriage house—where he went on to paint the iconic American Gothic. This cemented in Pete Jr. the importance of supporting the arts through business, a core value at Illegal Pete’s.
