The “Granddaddy of American Art Festivals,” the Gold Coast Art Fair, rated one of the top 30 shows in the United States by Sunshine Artist Magazine and a top show by Art Fair Calendar in 2014, returns to Grant Park, Chicago’s premier festival destination! Now celebrating its 59th year, the Gold Coast Art Fair is the 3rd oldest and by far one of the most well attended art festivals in Chicago. Located within walking distance of the Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park, The Bean, and Buckingham Fountain, the Gold Coast Art Fair draws hundreds of thousands of art enthusiasts from Chicago and the surrounding suburbs annually. A heavy advertising program also brings in tourists who buy art as a memory of their special time in Chicago. Chicago has just been rated one of the top 5 tourist destinations in the United States by Travel magazine. Cash awards for top award winners. The Gold Coast Art Fair features about 325 artists in a lovely setting with both lake views and vistas backed by the Chicago skyline. Paved walks lead to every booth and every artist is on the main loop or at a festival entry. Food, Beverage and Music oasis in each corner of the festival provide good rest stops for artists and visitors. A special Artist VIP tent provides backup support during the festival. Discounted parking is made available to artists. Load in is dolly in and out, but most distances are short as we load this show in from three sides the day before the festival. Helpful staff is on site from load in through load out. Great music and food add to the weekend. Artists will have the opportunity to interact with the public through art demos and booth chats.
