A special announcement regarding this year’s Chesterton Art Fair:


It is with great regret that we must inform you that the 62nd Annual Chesterton Art Fair has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus.

Everyone’s well-being is our utmost priority.  We do not wish to have anyone be exposed to the virus and become ill or pass it on unknowingly to someone else at an event that we are hosting.  The health and safety of the artists, volunteers, community, and patrons are at the forefront of this decision.  Ensuring social distancing for the possible 3,000 to 7,000 visitors would be a daunting task, and a very necessary one this year.  The Board of Directors made the decision to not risk anyone’s health.

We hope you will choose to attend and/or apply to be a part of the 2021 Chesterton Art Fair on August 7 and 8 of next year. The online application will go live January 1, 2021. 

Please know that this decision was made with a heavy heart.  We will miss all of you who wanted to attend, and all of the talented artists we had hoped to showcase.  Art Fair Artists- Take good care of yourselves, continue to create beautiful art, and hopefully we will see you next year!
