More than 260 juried international artists present original artwork, and sixteen-plus local restaurants of Highland Park offer cuisine including Italian, Asian, Mexican, traditional Chicago hot dogs, pizza and BBQ.

The Port Clinton Art Festival is rated number five in the nation, according to Sunshine Artists magazine, and has been recently featured on their cover. One unique feature of the festival is its Youth Art Division, with original artwork by artists eighteen and under.

The Festival sprawls along Central, 1st and 2nd streets and provides plenty of seating in the form of benches and outdoor dining tables near the live music stages.
