Cantigny Park is pleased to announce Art in Bloom, an outdoor arts festival taking place on June 16th and 17th, 2018. More than 70 juried artists will showcase their work amidst Cantigny’s beautiful gardens, grounds, and museums. Cantigny is a 500-acre park and part of the Chicago-based McCormick Foundation. It is home to two museums, formal gardens, picnic grounds, restaurants and 27 holes of championship golf.
Art in Bloom 2018 promises even more excitement than our past art festivals, which are always among the park’s most popular events. Two-day attendance is expected around 10,000 if the weather is favorable. Artist amenities include Friday night set-up, an air conditioned artist break room, snacks, and volunteers galore. This event is located on grass under large trees. Ample parking is another valuable asset!
Our publicity campaign will include, but is not limited to, radio, newspaper, e-blast, twitter, facebook, postcards, web, Cantigny Visitors Guide as well as our Spring and Summer Events Guide, posters and banners. In addition we plan on working with many of Cantigny’s partners, affiliates, and sponsors to help make this art fair the best that it can be.
Quality of artwork will take precedence over quantity of artists so the show may vary in size somewhat. Art in Bloom 2018 promises to be Cantigny’s best arts fest ever!
