Riverside Drive, Elgin, IL

AREA 22 Arts, Crafts, and Oddities Fair will showcase the creations and collections of visual artists in the Elgin area.

Side Street Studio Arts invites you to participate in the first of this one-of-a-kind event in Downtown Elgin.

So, grab your kids, your parents, your neighbors, your pets…yes, dogs and snakes are allowed…and attend the most exciting art fair you will ever experience.
