The 53rd annual Chesterton Art Fair will be held Saturday and Sunday, August 6th and 7th at Hawthorne Park in Porter, IN. The hours of the fair are 10 am - 5 pm each day. The admission charge is $5 for adults, and children are admitted free. Parking is also free.
Over 80 fine artists from 10 states all across the country will be exhibiting in this juried, well-known and respected art fair. The best of everything- paintings, drawings, photography, handmade jewelry, sculpture, weaving, glass, and pottery can be found at this year’s fair.
New to the fair this year is the “I Can Do That” booth, where adults can try their hand at various art forms such as watercolor painting and clay. There is no charge to pick up a paintbrush, roll some clay in your hands, and try other forms of art under the guidance of art instructors from the Chesterton Art Center. “People have often commented that they would like to try certain art forms, but felt they ‘couldn’t do it’”, says Chesterton Art Center Director Judy Gregurich. “So, we thought this year we would let people be spontaneous and try art on the spot without formally committing to a class.”
