September 27-29, 2019, the 6th Annual Edwardsville Art Fair brings nearly 100 artists from across the country to our community while spotlighting our local talents. The artists bring their best wares with $15,000 in awards presented to selected artists. Our artists have proclaimed our event as one of the top local art fairs held each year; one artist said it’s the hospitality and the friendliness of the community that is the best part of participating in the Edwardsville Art Fair. Although the main attraction of this event is the artists, the art fair offers a little something for everyone. Each day, the entertainment stage flows with performances by dancers and musicians and the restaurant vendors fill the air with delicious scents of treats available for purchase. Children’s Create IT and Take IT tent is such a big attraction at the fair. The tent is open both Saturday the 28nd and Sunday the 29rth, kids can come to the Create IT and Take IT tent to create their own take-away art projects.  Art materials will be provided for free, and kids will have a blast getting creative and colorful with this fun art opportunity. This activity has exceptionally popular in years past – bring your family to this event to see what fun projects we have planned. Art for the making, experiencing, and purchasing; enjoyment for all.
