APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2014 ART FAIR
ARE NO LONGER BEING ACCEPTED.


WE PLAN TO ACCEPT APPLICATIONS FOR THE
2015 OLD TOWN ART FAIR
FROM SEPTEMBER 15 THRU DECEMBER 15, 2014

 

A new Patrons’ Choice Prize is in store for the 2014 Old Town Art Fair!

 

The Old Town Art Fair will be held June 14-15, 2014.  Applications for the 2014 Fair are now being accepted until December 15, 2013 at www.zapplication.org

 

The Old Town Art Fair is a fine art show located on the streets, amid the charming homes and leafy parkways, of the historic Old Town Triangle neighborhood on Chicago’s near north side.  Picked as one of American Style Magazine’s Top Ten art fairs, it has been a perennial favorite of artists, art lovers and art buyers since 1948.  This volunteer-run event benefits neighborhood groups and schools and the Old Town Triangle Association, presenter of the Fair.

 

The 65th annual edition promises to be something even more special!  Changes are afoot to make this the best Fair ever for our artists and patrons.
