The Riverside Arts Weekend is a juried, fine arts festival held in the heart of the historic landmark community of Riverside, Illinois. This two-day, free community festival is held on the 2nd weekend of June, with the 2024 event on June 8 & 9. The Riverside Arts Weekend has been in existence since 2008 and is accessible to areas throughout Chicago with nearby train station and highways in proximity. The event offers artists and patrons convenient parking, food vendors, and activities for both children and adults. Artists are provided with booth-sitting by our volunteers, complimentary coffee & snacks, and overnight security.
"Loved being a part of the RAW event! It was well advertised with lots of traffic (even on the rainy Sunday) and everything was well organized and easy to maneuver with load in/load out."
"We had a lot of fun at RAW and we found some unique items to buy! So much talent in the world!!! The committee always does such an excellent job putting this event together!" (patron: Lenore L)
The Riverside Arts Weekend continues to grow after its return last year after a 3 year interlude and has added opportunities for artists to demonstrate and showcase their art. RAW also is expanding our event promotion across 10+ adjacent communities.
