Mrs Q says; We can get there by bus # 147 – her favorite.
Q-Tips say: We were not sure if we should go, it was overcast and looked like rain. We went and had the best time ever and NO rain. Mrs. Q says: The Art Fair was ok. Seemed to be smaller than other years. They advertise it to be “FREE” and Mrs. Q likes “FREE.” However, at the door they offer a box for suggested donations of $5.00 – so you decide what you want to do, donate or walk in for free.
Go, enjoy. This is a really big FREE Art Fair along the beautiful lakefront. An easy walk to see Buckingham Fountain, the Bean, Millennium Park or the wonderful Art Museum.
