Art, Food, Music – who could as for anything more? Here’s the line-up: Over 80 juried artists from all over the country, food by Ivy’s Bohemia, Women of the Moose, Dairy Queen, St. Elizabeth’s Church, and Redamak’s Food Truck, plus- on Sunday a Pancake Breakfast next door at Bethlehem Lutheran Church; music by the Golden Fingers Ukulele Band, the Duneland Early Music Consort, and the Northwest Indiana Youth Symphony.

We will again offer a children’s art experience booth, where the kids can create their own work of art to take home with them.

Our wonderful Art Fair neighbors, Bethlehem Lutheran Church will also provide a “cooling center” for those who need a break from the weather if it is a little too warm. This is a family friendly event! So, bring everyone…but please, leave your pets at home. See you there!

Proceeds from the Chesterton Art Fair go to the Art Education Fund at the Chesterton Art Center. Over 1,000 children participate in art classes each year, creating projects and learning to appreciate and enjoy art in many forms. The Chesterton Art Center is located at 115 S. 4th St., Chesterton, IN 46304. For more information, please see the website at www.chestertonart.com.
