PARK FOREST ART FAIR CELEBRATES 66TH YEAR
DOWNTOWN PARK FOREST ON VILLAGE GREEN AND MAIN STREETS
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17 AND
SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 18
10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The Park Forest Art Fair, hosted by the Tall Grass Arts Association, will be
celebrating its 66 th year in Downtown Park Forest on September 17 and 18
from 10 – 5. “The fair has maintained its quality over the years,” said
Chairman Janet Muchnik. “It attracts a great variety of talents, some new
artists and many who have exhibited continuously for years. Visitors to the
fair will see ceramics, sculpture, photographs, paintings in many media,
jewelry and hand-blown glass.”

A special feature of the fair is the Kids Art Alley which offers a variety of
hands-on craft activities. The Village will host  MUSIC FEST on Saturday of
the fair. Food vendors will be on site including two food trucks. The Tall
Grass Gallery will be open all day on both days of the fair. Both the fair and
the gallery are free of charge. Both are great places in which to purchase
art for your home, art to wear, or gifts for friends and family.
More information is available on the Tall Grass Facebook page or by calling the gallery at 708-748-3377.
