Our Fine Art & Artisan Fair is set for Saturday & Sunday, June 26 & 27, 2021

The Naperville Woman's Club will host their 61th Naperville Fine Art & Artisan Fair in a two-day community celebration featuring over 130 artists exhibiting, selling, and demonstrating their original works. It is held each year in the heart of downtown Naperville - one block from the bustling popular downtown shopping and restaurant district at Naper Settlement, a "living history" museum with historic Naperville buildings, paved pathways and convenient parking.

 

Free admission to the fair and park. (Naper Settlement allows service animals only.)

 

So, here are the exciting things NWC is planning for the patrons . . .  

  • Sunshine and shade!  Enjoy both as you stroll to see the wares of over 130 artists and artisans

  • Channel your own inner artist as you paint one part of a 12' x 8' community mural. (Then watch it come to life throughout the two day event)

  • Let the kids create their visions at the Petite Picasso Tent 

  • Try your luck in the Meeting House as you bid on artist donated creations at our Silent Auction (profits will be contributed to NWC philanthropic endeavors)

  • Choose the perfect ClaySpace created pottery creation from the Empty Bowls Project. (Funds raised will be donated to local food pantries)

  • Feast on exciting food  options
