10 - 5 on Saturday and 10 - 4 on Sunday
Our 9th annual festival is a favorite for artists and patrons.
The festival is held in beautiful Guthrie Park near the historic Metra Line train station in Riverside, IL. Artists booths are on grass in the park. Many are shaded!
In addition to fine art and fine craft, RAW has a tradition of involving artists and the community in a RAW Spectacle! This year, landscape follies will be installed around the downtown Riverside area.
We involve the Riverside Arts Center who generously sponsors the Kids Art Area. And, we have terrific "festival friendly' live music.
Riverside is a historic picturesque town just west of downtown Chicago and easily accessible by both public transportation and highways.
ALL artists are juried by a panel of artists, art educators, gallery owners and/or collectors.
Everyone has an equal opportunity of being accepted. We are accepting applications, via ZAPP, until March 1, 2016.
RAW is a not for profit organization committed to the arts. Riverside Arts Weekend is sponsored and supported by the Village of Riverside, the Riverside Chamber of Commerce, community businesses and art patrons.
