WE NOW OFFER FRIDAY SET-UP! For the first time, artists will have the option to set up Friday, June 9, 4pm-8pm.
The Old Town Art Fair is a fine art show that takes place under a canopy of tree-lined streets in the landmarked historic district of Chicago's Old Town Triangle neighborhood. A perennial favorite of artists and buyers alike, Old Town's historic homes serve as the perfect backdrop for the artists' booths.
Artists have made their way to Old Town since 1950 to show and sell their work to a singularly appreciative audience. The Old Town Art Fair is presented by the not-for-profit Old Town Triangle Association. Hundreds of volunteers team up with neighborhood residents to produce this exceptional show that is an all-volunteer endeavor. All proceeds benefit the preservation of the historic character of the neighborhood, as well as art and cultural programs and local youth groups.
