Registration Information

Here is what artists had to say about our 2017 event:


"Surrounded by nature, this festival is VERY well attended, making it one of my most successful art festivals two years in a row.  It is well run, with set up and take down that is easier than most.  It is fun and energizing, and profitable."


"The Morton Arboretum is the perfect venue to hold a nature themed Art Fair.  The staff of the Arboretum ensures that this event is a perennial favorite of both artists and patrons alike.  Amidst many art events in the Chicagoland area, the Morton Arboretum Wine and Art Walk is a major highlight."


"Beautiful venue filled with enthusiastic, knowledgeable patrons."
