From 8th annual Barrington Art Festival Website:
The 8th annual Barrington Art Festival is on the closed streets of Barrington, located 30 minutes northwest of Chicago. Held Memorial Day weekend, the community flocks to this festival to buy art. Known for its grand mansions and horse farms, the affluent and vibrant Chicago suburb of Barrington boasts a wealthy population with a deep appreciation and buying history of art. Located 35 miles northwest of Chicago, the Village of Barrington is the commercial center of a cluster of affluent communities that stretches across two major counties.
The festival takes place in the charming downtown of Barrington, filled with delectable cafes, unique boutiques and popular restaurants. Store fronts range from turn of the century to modern. The festival layout has artists back to the curb with a main center walkway for visitors. Cute sitting areas dot the festival.
A lovely awards party for artists hosted by the Village Saturday night at a local restaurant is a highlight among artists. Festival admission and parking for the public are free. Artists will have the opportunity to interact with the public through art demos and booth chats. Live music, great food and fun activities for kids make the festival a perfect family experience.
