The “Granddaddy of American Art Festivals,” returns to Grant Park, Chicago’s premier festival destination! Now celebrating its 60th year, the Gold Coast Art Fair is the 3rd oldest and by far one of the most well attended art festivals in Chicago. Located within walking distance of the Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park, The Bean, and Buckingham Fountain, the Gold Coast Art Fair draws hundreds of thousands of art enthusiasts from Chicago and the surrounding suburbs annually. A heavy advertising program also brings in tourists who buy art as a memory of their special time in Chicago. Chicago has just been rated one of the top 5 tourist destinations in the United States by Travel magazine.
