The family-friendly event will feature more than 80 juried artists in a variety of mediums, displaying and offering their works for sale. Live demos will take place on both days.
Cantigny favorites Classical Blast, Guitarra Azul and Swing Forward will provide amazing live music each day.
Kids and adults alike are invited to participate in a fun community art project involving thousands of recycled bottle caps. The finished works of art will be displayed at Cantigny throughout the summer. Children also can paint the ever-popular Monster Mural!
Park visitors are encouraged to also enjoy Cantigny’s regular attractions, including 30 acres of lush gardens, the historic Robert R. McCormick Museum and the inspiring First Division Museum. At the latter, visitors can tour “Five Years in the Jungle,” a fascinating and interactive new exhibit about the 1st Infantry Division’s experience in Vietnam from 1965-1970. The gardens and museums at Cantigny are always free admission.
Inside the Visitors Center, see the new Cantigny Park 60th Anniversary Photo Exhibit and check out the Cantigny Shop’s new summer merchandise.
Delicious festival-style food will be available outdoors during Art in Bloom and Le Jardin (in the Visitors Center) will be open for sit-down dining. Cantigny’s spacious picnic area (with playground) is another family-friendly option.
