Mark your calendars for the Chesterton Art Fair

July 26, 2018


The lull of mid-summer can be discouraging at times. With the major holidays passed and the school year looming in the distance, trying to make the most of what is left of these sun-kissed days can be overwhelming. Thankfully, we have just the event to get you out of the house, into the sun and enjoying local sights and flavors.

The Chesterton Art Fair is in its 60th year of bringing locals, artists and artisans together for a two-day event on August 4-5. The fair, which attracts more than 95 juried artists from all across the country to Chesterton, is family-friendly. Bring your kids, your friends and your neighbors for delectable food from Redamak’s Patty Wagon, Ivy’s Bohemia House and crowd favorites from local service groups. Not only are there booths of fine art and food, but there is also live music and a children’s art experience booth.
