Call for Entries: Downtown Art Fair in Illinois


August 23
Downtown Fine Art Fair
Mokena, IL
75 exhibitors
Deadline: July 15

Mokena is 27 SW of The Loop in suburban Chicagoland. Visit this link for location.

The Mokena Chamber of Commerce presents the Festival of Elegance, a celebration of art, food, wine and automobiles. This will be part of a day-long celebration that includes:

  • a fine art show
  • the Annual Food & Wine Festival
  • the French Market, a weekly farmers market
  • and the Concours D’Elegance (a classic car show)

The Fine Arts Committee presents the art show to enhance the other upscale activities taking place. The Concours is an organization of affluent car collectors who gather to enjoy fine cars. Put that together with the fine food and wine festival and you have a day planned to attract an audience that can appreciate one-of-a-kind art.
The pluses:

  • one day event=low expenses
  • a beautiful date when the weather is invariably beautiful
  • low booth fee – $85
  • an audience that will appreciate fine work
