Market Square, Lake Forest, Illinois

Enjoy a lovely Labor Day weekend with other art enthusiasts at the historical Lake Forest Market Square. The whole family is sure to enjoy the 61st annual Deer Path Art League “Art Fair on the Square”. Designed along the style of an English market square, the exhibit is thoughtfully arranged around the Square to facilitate viewing and interaction with artists.

The event, ranked among the top 100 art shows in the nation, expects 20,000 viewers to appreciate the works of the 180 national and international juried artists. The Art Fair encompasses a broad variety of mediums, including painting, drawing, photography, graphic arts, mixed media, sculpture and much more. Approximately $4,000 in prizes will be awarded by the judges.

The mission of the Deer Path Art League is to foster art appreciation and raise community awareness, as well as to “spark, nurture and enhance creativity”.  Youth artisans will also display and sell their creations, and children will enjoy the Creation Station with interactive art projects. Many of the League’s volunteers are local high school students who assist in setting up the Art Fair, and are greatly appreciated by the League.

The Lake Forest Market Square was built in 1916 and is the nation’s first designed shopping center. It has 25 stores and restaurants -- vendors will offer pizza, Japanese fare and snacks. The Market Square also affords easy access as it located across the street from the Metra train station. Admission and parking for the event are free.

The classical ambience of Lake Forest Market Square is perfect for enjoying a day out with the family. So don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate the arts with the Deer Path Art League at “Art Fair on the Square” this Labor Day.
