Artists from all over the country will be showcasing their work in a great variety of mediums. Local food vendors, including Ivy's Bohemia House, Biggby Coffee, Dog Days Ice Cream Parlor, Women of the Moose, and St. Elizabeth Orthodox Church, will sell food and beverages throughout the weekend. Plus, musicians including the Golden Fingers Ukelele Band, Ally Christian, the Salt Exchange, and the NWI Youth Symphony will all perform.

Proceeds from the Chesterton Art Fair are vital to the operation of the Art Center. Funds raised help provide art education programming for the coming year. Over 1,000 children participate in art classes each year, creating projects and learning to appreciate and enjoy art in its many forms.

New projects for children to create will be featured at the Art Fair this year in the expanded children's art experience booths.

The Art Fair has a no pets policy. Only official service animals are allowed into the Art Fair.

The 61st annual Chesterton Art Fair is made possible in part from the generous sponsorship from Service Sanitation. Dogwood Park is located at the corner of 1100 N and 23rd St. in Chesterton.
