Art Fair on the Square Going Dark
Faced with uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Deer Path Art League has cancelled the 66th annual Art Fair on the Square.
Traditionally, the art fair takes place the Sunday and Monday of Labor Day weekend and is a popular book end to summer in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff.
The Art League carefully deliberated the feasibility of holding the fair amidst all the unknowns about the pandemic and the reopening plan for Illinois. It ultimately decided cancelling the fair was in the best interest of its artists, patrons and community.
Deer Path Art League will post a series on its Facebook page featuring all of the artists invited to the 2020 fair, so that people can still see their work.
The scheduled date for the next art fair is September 5-6, 2021.
