A multi-cultural and multi-generational lineup of 120+ artists from all over Chicago,

weaving a stimulating creative tapestry in the heart of Edgewater,

peppered with a contagious community vibe!

Organized by Edgewater Artists in Motion in collaboration with 48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman.

Now in its third year of continuous growth, the Edgewater Fall Art Fair is a labor of love by artists and art lovers for all those who appreciate artistic talent, enjoy community life, and like to discover Chicago’s hidden gems.

The Edgewater Fall Art Fair aims to show Edgewater to Chicagoans like they’ve never seen it before while helping local businesses and creative talent prosper.
