Event Series Event Series: Gold Coast Art Fair

Gold Coast Art Fair

June 16, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

$10 – $15

Join us in celebrating 66 years of a Chicago tradition, the Gold Coast Art Fair in Chicago’s Grant Park. Start your friends or family day fueling up with breakfast near the park, then get your steps in while browsing thousands of art pieces from over 200 artists. Take a break at one of our 3 oases with tasty treats, live music and cold beer. Make your masterpiece at our painting classes, and have the kids get creative in the Kid Zone with art projects, face painting and more. Be sure to look for Kids Art Stop & Live Art Demo stations to interact with our artists! Attendees are also invited to bring their gently used art where it will be donated to Chicago Furniture Bank, a nonprofit that distributes furnishings and art to those leaving shelters and moving into permanent housing.

All surrounding streets and garages are open for Gold Coast Art Fair visitors! Gold Coast Art Fair will not be effected by NASCAR street closures. Public transportation is always a great option when visiting the fair – all loop trains and Michigan Avenue busses will bring you within blocks of the fair.
