- The Edgewater Young Artists Gallery and Parade, with works from students of local schools;
- A Children’s Activity Corner;
- A Children’s Music Talent Showcase;

A new performing arts stage will be added to our lineup.
2013 Edgewater Fall Art Fair – Roundup
In its first edition, the Edgewater Fall Art Fair registered an attendance of almost 5,000 art lovers from all parts of Chicago and was a success for the participating artists. The event was praised as “phenomenal” by 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman and by many attendees, who really appreciated the unique community spirit that the Fair created in the heart of Edgewater.
“It was a really terrific event. It has the potential to grow into one of the city’s main Art Festivals” – Raffle winner
“The Fall Art Show was great. I know that this show will have no trouble gaining traction and each year will be better and better. I had a very good sales weekend….frankly, my numbers rivaled shows that I’ve been doing for years, so I am a very happy camper!” – Gayle Weiss, Artist
“You guys really do an Art Show right!” – Jeff Semmerling, Artist
