The Downers Grove Fine Arts Festival will be celebrating 44 years this fall The festival is held in the middle of award winning, historic, Downtown Downers Grove which is located 22 miles from Chicago's loop. Direct access to the BNSF rail line brings patrons from around the region and the City of Chicago to the festival. Downtown Downers Grove has added just over 260 high-end residential units recently, in addition to the residential units already present.
The festival is currently scheduled to be held in the middle of Main Street. Boutiques, cafes and a children's art area will complement the high caliber of art that will be present at the show. Downers Grove has a population just under 50,000 and was named by Forbes Magazine as one of the Top 10 Friendliest Towns in America. The show is a community favorite and we are happy to be bringing Fine Art back this fall after a year off due to Covid-19.
