YES! We’re glad you asked. There are two DIFFERENT art events in Old Town! They are both held the second weekend of June and are just a few blocks from each other. It’s very confusing, we know.
The Original Old Town Art Fair, now in its 69th
year, is a Fine Art Fair located in the historic Old Town Triangle District just north of North Avenue (you know, where all the quaint houses and gardens are “back in the neighborhood part”).
Our great neighbors and friends down the street host the Wells Street Art Festival just south of North Avenue on Wells Street. (you know, where all the bars and restaurants are “right along Wells Street”).
Both events are a lot of fun, have their own vibe and personality, styles of art and types of music. It’s a great weekend to be in Old Town, that’s for sure!
These are two different and distinct events. Separate donations are requested at each event. Click here to see where the proceeds from the Old Town Art Fair go
