The Old Town Art Fair takes place on Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13, 2021 in the heart of the charming Old Town Triangle Historic District in Chicago and has been voted #1 Art Fair in America.* There will be 200+ nationally acclaimed artists, an estimated 15,000 art lovers, a Garden Walk, Live Music, Food Court and Children’s Corner. Gates open Saturday 10:00 am to 7:00 pm and Sunday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, rain or shine.
We are thrilled that the Old Town Art Fair has been voted the #1 art fair in the country for the fifth year in a row! We have an amazing team of more than 600 volunteers who work hard to produce this important event that brings so much art, business and cultural activity to Chicago and the Old Town Triangle.

The Old Town Art Fair is a Fine Art Fair which includes 2D and 3D Mixed Media, Drawings, Paintings, Photography, Printmaking, Ceramics, Glass, Fiber, Jewelry and works in Metal, Stone and Wood. Each year, every artist is selected by an independent jury of art professionals from the Chicago area. There will be returning favorites along with many fresh things to explore — nearly half of the exhibiting artists will be new to the Fair.
Proceeds from the Old Town Art Fair benefit the Old Town Triangle Association, Menomonee Club, local schools, arts and cultural programs, children’s programs and historic and architectural preservation projects. It is a completely volunteer-run event and all proceeds benefit the community.
Normally, two separate art events are held in Old Town on the second weekend in June every year and are often confused with each other. This is the Original Old Town Art Fair, which is a juried Fine Art fair and includes a Garden Walk and other family-friendly activities. Our friends and neighbors a few blocks away host the Wells Street Art Festival – which will return in August this year.
*The Old Town Art Fair was rated the #1 Art Fair in the Country for the fifth year in a row by ArtFairCalendar.com, the #1 website for art fair event listings. This rating was based on a survey of artists, attendees and fine art collectors.
