• We got rave reviews on the new layout that was unveiled in 2017, which integrated food, drink, and seating areas throughout the fair. We're keeping the look, with some minor tweaks recommended by visitors.

• New this year in the Demonstration Tent - wood artist Wyatt Severs will demonstrate woodturning on a giant lathe as well as spindle turning. Also, ceramic artist Anne K. Beyer will be throwing on the wheel in the tent located in front of the Mitchell Home. 

• Three entertainment tents will again feature regional musicians - 13 acts throughout the weekend!

• The Saturday evening Awards Dinner will be held in the Performance Hall and recognize 13 of this year's outstanding artists.

• Craft beers on tap from Baum's Brauhaus (Woodlawn, IL), and this year you can purchase flights!

• The Children's Area will be brimming with lots of creative fun!

And it gets even better!

• More than 25 new artists will exhibit this year, alongside many returning favorites. There will be more than 100 art booths plus the food concession booths with mouthwatering options!

• A specialty drink tent will offer frozen selections such as margaritas, strawberry daiquiris, and more.
