Join Us At This Year's Show...
You are cordially invited to join us on Dearborn Street in Olde Englewood Village for our Spring Fine Arts Festival!
Newly revived and sparkling with old-world charm, this once sleepy town transforms into a pedestrian-only artist's village. Shoppers enjoy strolling through the artists' booths, visiting the unique shops, and dining at the many new restaurants in the village.
This year's seasoned team of organizers are committed to presenting a successful, profitable, and professional festival.
Our Promotional campaign will begin well in advance of the event and will include newspaper coverage, radio spots & live interviews, flyers and posters distributed throughout the community, print advertisements, area signage, and much more!
Ribbons and cash awards will be presented for Best of Show in both two and three-dimensional work. Awards in other categories will also be given.
Artists Throughout the Entire Country Participate Every Year...
In addition to visiting the unique shops and great restaurants that create the charm of West Dearborn Street, shoppers can stroll through the booths of over a hundred artists. Well-known local artists and exhibitors from all over the United States will be participating!
Fine art in all mediums will be available, including: sculpture (metal, wood and glass), paintings (watercolor, acrylic, oil and pastel), jewelry (gold, silver, and gemstones), photography, pottery and ceramics, and mixed media.
