Free to the public, and celebrating and showcasing the arts for the 22nd year, applications are now being accepted via Zapp for the West End Arts Festival. Deadline is March 30, 2017.
This juried fine arts festival has become a popular end-of-the-summer event for the community as well as for high-caliber artists from across the country due to its strong reputation as being well-organized and being very artist friendly!
The feedback we receive from our artists is that they enjoy and do well as the event attracts buyers not just browsers. The event also includes Jazz music, culinary demonstrations by local chef artists, children's art activities, and new for 2017 - a wine tasting tent.
The event draws visitors from surrounding communities to the upscale and family-friendly village of La Grange as it is easily accessible and located about 20 minutes west of Chicago. The West End Arts Festival is held in the shadow of the landmark Stone Avenue Metra train station in the charming and historic west end area of La Grange, IL, surrounded by mature trees and small businesses.
It is truly a picture-perfect setting to showcase art.
The staff and members of the vibrant La Grange Business Association, in cooperation with the Village of La Grange, plan, host, promote and support the artists and festival through numerous marketing channels We are excited about some of the layout changes we will be implementing in 2017 to make all booths even more visible.
