An outdoor fine art & fine craft exhibition and sale featuring artists, live entertainment, food truck vendors, and children’s activities. The 32nd annual Prairie Arts Festival is held on the impressive Robert O. Atcher Municipal Center grounds in Schaumburg, IL. Schaumburg is the largest center of economic development in the State of Illinois, outside the City of Chicago, but it is also very much a community of neighbors and neighborhoods. The two day event draws approximately 10,000 and offers free admission. Enjoyed by artists for its crowds, attentive staff and beautiful location, the premier festival has become a favorite of both vendors and patrons.
