The Park Forest Art Fair, which is sponsored by Tall Grass Arts Association, celebrates its 65th year, Sept. 18 and 19, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, in Downtown Park Forest on the Village Green. The artists hail from all over the metropolitan area. This year TGAA is pleased to introduce nineteen new artists and many favorite returning artists. Among the favorite returning artists is Bob Nardi of Oak Forest. Attendance at the fair is free to the public.
The fair features music on both days with a music fest on Saturday and fest favorites, the folk duo Patchouli, on Sunday. A special feature of the fair is the Kids’ Art Alley. It offers a range of hands-on arts and craft activities to delight the younger set, including the almost legendary Children’s Art Contest and face painting.
