Call for Artists: Edgewater Fall Art Fair

September 27 & 28
Chicago, Illinois
Presented by Edgewater Artists in Motion

90 Artists
Deadline: July 31

Edgewater is a lakefront community area on the North Side of Chicago. Our event got its start during the economic downturn when residents of the area decided to fill our empty storefronts with art. This simple activity turned the neighborhood around as the storefronts soon filled up again with new tenants, leaving no room to display the art.

Building on this economic activity, in 2013 the Edgewater Fall Art Fair was started. In its first year it drew about 5000 people and was described by 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman and many attendees as "phenomenal."

Encouraged by the response to their inaugural event Edgewater Artists in Motion plan to add one block to the location, going from 65 to 90 exhibitors, increase attendance by 40%, and continue their marketing push to make the fair a "must attend" Chicago event. 
  • an eclectic mix of fine art and fine craft 
  • local performing artists and area musicians
  • beer garden

Spaces are $150.

This is your chance to be part of a newer event where the community is eager for a successful show that will show off their cool neighborhood. Spend a beautiful fall weekend in Edgewater with us.
