Now in its fourth year, the Edgewater Arts Festival (formerly, Edgewater Fall Art Fair) is rapidly growing into one of Chicago’s premier artistic events. It combines fine art with a unique, contagious “block party” atmosphere.
Each year, the Festival hosts an impressive multi-cultural and multi-generational lineup of Chicago artists and attracts thousands of art lovers and buyers coming from all over the city.

• Young Artists’ Gallery, with artworks by 2nd to 12th grade students of Chicago schools;
