A 2 Day Community Art Fair in Chicago usually held in one of the first two weekends in June usually between 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The suggested donation at one of the entrances to the Art Fair is usually under $10, but as it says it is a suggested donation, so you can contribute whatever you would like.

The art fair is held in a couple of blocks of Chicago's Old Town neighborhood which I have become much more acquainted with in the past several years and will be come even more familiar with since my oldest son moved there in June, 2012.

Besides the art there are a number of food vendors and music throughout the 2 day event.

Address: Approximately Wells and North Avenue
Directions: Wells and North Avenue on the near north side of Chicago is the closest major intersection. If you get here you will be within a block or two of the art fair.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
