PORT CLINTON ART FESTIVAL

IN HIGHLAND PARK, ILLINOIS • AUGUST 23 – AUGUST 24, 2014 • SAT & SUN 10-6


For 30 years, the Port Clinton Art Festival has been recognized as one of the most successful juried art festivals in the country. Currently rated as the number five art festival in the country, the Port Clinton Art Festival offers fine art from more than 260 of the world’s most celebrated artists. More than 250,000 art enthusiasts travel from places near and far to visit this distinguished outdoor festival, which was founded by Amy Amdur, the founder of her namesake firm Amdur Productions. Young artists, ages 18 and under, shine in the Youth Art Division of the show, which offers younger artists an opportunity to exhibit and participate in a real art festival. Throughout the weekend, festival-goers will have the opportunity to enjoy art activities for kids, including an art scavenger hunt, interactive art demos and, of course, original artwork offered by master artists from around the world.

Kicking off the festival weekend is the 7th Annual Taste of Highland Park, which opens Friday and runs in conjunction with the festival throughout the weekend. The Taste features food and libations from many of Highland Park’s most notable restaurants. In addition to the tasty fare, festival-goers will enjoy a variety of live musical performances on the music stage throughout the weekend.
