Artists: Apply to this show
DEADLINE TO APPLY IS FEBRUARY 28, 2019
The new Andersonville Arts Fest will be held in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood, a district on the north side of Chicago with a population of 110,248. A strong Swedish heritage, a longstanding progressive ethos, and a commitment to local, independent businesses, make this community welcoming to all.
Andersonville is comprised almost entirely of unique, locally-owned, independent businesses. In 2010 the Andersonville business area was named a National Historic District because of its rich cultural and architectural history. Produced by Amdur Productions, and hosted by the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce, this event will be well supported by strong marketing on all platforms.
Andersonville Arts Fest caps off the 17th annual Andersonville Arts Week, a celebration of artist receptions, exhibits, and displays at more than 70 businesses well-attended by the community. The two day outdoor festival runs September 21 and 22 with night before set up.
Andersonville Arts Fest is held on three blocks of Clark Street, a main north-south street, closed to traffic for the festival. All booths will be on the street. Set up and load out are easy and quick. Amdur Productions will provide support services to artists from start to finish including special hotel block rates, flighted load in, complete pre-festival info packages, name tags, board tags, on site support, booth sitters, artists refreshments and more.
Jury fee $25. Space fee $395 (12 wide by 10 deep), and for those wanting more space there is a discounted double deal for $675 (22 wide by 10 deep). Tent and table rental is available through the festival to make your life a bit easier.
