Get Inspired by the Artistry of Your Community During the Old Town Art Fair

Gather your friends and family for one of the most anticipated events of the year! The Old Town Art Fair takes place on Saturday, June 8th in the heart of the charming Old Town Triangle Historic District. There will be 250 nationally acclaimed artists, an estimated 30,000 art lovers, a garden walk, live music, food court and children’s corner. Don’t miss it this weekend!

The Old Town Art Fair is a fine art fair which includes 2D and 3D mixed media, drawings, paintings, photography, printmaking, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry and works in metal, stone and wood. Each year, every artist is selected by an independent jury of art professionals from the Chicago area. You’ll find returning favorites along with many fresh things to explore — nearly half of the exhibiting artists will be new to the Fair. The Fair is a completely volunteer-run event and all proceeds benefit the local community.

The garden walk allows you to peek into the quaint green spaces that make the Old Town Triangle on Chicago’s north side a truly charming and delightful neighborhood. Over 50 gardens will be in bloom and on display, many of them private and viewable only during the Art Fair. You’ll also discover historical information, fun facts and anecdotes about the homes, architecture, and past and present residents. Who knows, you may even spot a proud gardener in their natural habitat.

The event will also feature a roster of live music acts. Acts will perform a little jazz, a little swing, some folk, fusion and blues, providing just the right backdrop for enjoying a bite and a beverage or two, strolling the Fair and hanging out with friends.

Come see why the Old Town Art Fair has been voted America’s #1 Art Fair for the fourth year in a row! Stroll the charming, tree-lined streets of Chicago’s historic Old Town Triangle District and take in all of the Fair’s attractions this Saturday beginning at 10:00 a.m. A donation of $10 is suggested for entry. Children enter free. For more information, visit www.oldtownartfair.org.
