Ridge Park Fieldhouse

Ridge Park Cultural Center, backed by the Chicago Park District and the John H. Vanderpoel Art Association, along with the Ridge Park Advisory Council, present the Ridge Park Art Fair & Festival.

Local artists can sell their paintings, sculptures, wearables, prints, photographs, and much more by renting table space for a modest fee. Artists must supply their own tables and tents.

The event will also include food trucks, a bouncy castle, local bands and a DJ. Guests may tour the fieldhouse, home of the John H. Vanderpoel Art Museum, which hosts a world-class collection of impressionist paintings and other later 19th and early 20th century paintings and works on paper.
