Art on the Prairie is in it's 14th year! The art brings the community together to enjoy & purchase art & music all at the same time. The music is a folk style music, mixed in with a bit of country music.
The festival is set along the prairie path encouraging traffic from the path to stop and enjoy the arts throughout the weekend. The festival is an outdoor festival set on the upper level of City Hall Complex. Artists tents are located on the streets providing easy load in and out of the festival.
- Artists may bring their own tent or rent a tent.
- The crowds average 1900-2000 over the 2 day weekend.
- The artist's booth fees and expenses are low due to the support that is received from the City of Warrenville Hotel Motel Grants and the Park District passes this on to the artists.
Each year the arts are embraced by the Mayor and various City Officials with funding and advertising of the event. Social Media outlets, Newspaper ads, on-line festival websites, step-in the ground signs week of the event, posters, mailers, and digital advertising in both Daily Herald and Chicago Tribune are included in our marketing looking to bring you the customers you deserve.
New this year:
Food Trucks are being added to bring a new aspect to the festival encouraging increased crowd traffic. Various categories of Monetary Prizes for the artists are added this year
