Saturday, 11 am to 7 pm
Building on the success of its autumn event, Art on Harrison, the Oak Park Arts District launched “What’s Blooming on Harrison” in 1999. Over the years, this family-oriented May street festival has highlighted the Arts District through artist demonstrations, live music, dance performances and an art fair featuring select guest artists and local crafts people. 2017’s festival will be held on Saturday, May 20th, from 11:00 am - 7:00 pm with an after party at the Taylor Street Beer Garden to follow.
The What’s Blooming on Harrison Committee is currently seeking participants for the festival including artists, vintage goods sellers, musicians, For Profit Vendors, Not for Profit vendors and food vendors/food truck operators. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to sell your art or food and to promote your business or cause to the residents of Oak Park and its surrounding communities.

Participating artists will benefit from the opportunity to sell their handmade goods to a wonderful, diverse and enthusiastic community right outside the city of Chicago that actively supports The Arts as a model for positive growth. Artists are also encouraged to share their tools of trade and techniques and generate more business for themselves with affordably priced Maker Workshops created for an appreciative audience of all ages. Artists will benefit from a day spent in a small business district networking with other artists, art oriented businesses and the community at large. An extra special feature of this year’s festival is that it will coincide with the annual Oak Park Sculpture Walk which is being held in the Oak Park Arts District this spring.
