Port Clinton Art Festival
August 27, 2023, 10:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
The 40th Annual Port Clinton Art Festival, produced by Highland Park-based company Amdur Productions, returns to downtown Highland Park, Illinois. The outdoor art festival is rated as one of the top shows by Art Fair Calendar.
260 of the country’s most celebrated artists will showcase painting, jewelry, sculpture, photographs, fashion wearables, furniture and more.
“Our first, modest gathering of artists in 1983 has evolved into the largest suburban art festival in Illinois. This annual event is the perfect mix of talented artists, both young and old, in a lovely location convenient to savvy art enthusiasts and their families,” said festival producer Amy Amdur, president of Amdur Productions.
The downtown streets are closed to traffic during the festival, so attendees can appreciate the city’s architecture and landscaping by foot in a relaxed fashion. Festival-goers with strollers and wheelchairs can enjoy an accessible festival with easy access to all booths.
In addition to the artwork, festival-goers can enjoy delicious food and beverages from neighborhood establishments!
