14th Annual Glencoe Festival of Art
Set in Glencoe’s prestigious and historic downtown, just blocks from Lake Michigan on Chicago’s magnificent North Shore, the 14th annual Glencoe Festival of Art takes place on July 22 and 23. The festival, which covers Glencoe’s downtown, features more than 90 juried artists showing and selling paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass, jewelry and more! Family-friendly (and dog-friendly, too!), there are activities just for kids and live artist demonstrations, as well as non-stop live music along with restaurants and cafes on the festival route offering delicious meals and tasty treats. Admission is free and there is plenty of nearby free parking. The show is also wheelchair and stroller accessible. Attendees are invited to bring their gently used wall art to the festival where it will be donated to the Chicago Furniture Bank, a nonprofit that distributes furnishings and art to those leaving shelters and moving into permanent housing. Several artists from this show are participating in Amdur Productions’ Green Ribbon Project. Artists place a green ribbon on a piece of art in their booth, and if the piece is sold, 10% of the sale will be donated to Amdur’s charitable partner.
