Art on The Fox Festival Is This Weekend (Sept. 11-12) at New Location in Old Town Algonquin

Bringing nearly 100 artists together to engage with the community, Art on the Fox will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11, and Sunday, Sept. 12, on Main Street in Algonquin.

Located 40 miles northwest of Chicago along the Fox River, this free-entry festival, hosted by the village of Algonquin and Public Arts Commission, will showcase the work of top national juried artists, live musical performances, interactive artist demonstrations, and other activities.

Guests will have the opportunity to see and shop exceptional artwork in a variety of mediums including paintings, ceramics, glass, jewelry, sculpture and more.

Attendees of the fest will not only have the chance to shop for new art pieces, but also to meet and engage with the artists to gain a better understanding of their work and hear from them about the different processes, inspirations that go into their work. Live musical performances from Cirrus Falcon and Ron Steta Trio will take place in the newly renovated Old Town Algonquin, and many local eateries and shops are within walking distance from the show.

“Algonquin is looking forward to hosting our 14th annual Art on the Fox this year on our award-winning Main Street,” said Village President Debby Sosine. “There will be something for everyone — great art, live music and of course our wonderful stores and restaurants to also visit.”

Admission to this fest is free.

Walk-ups are welcome, but timed reservations are encouraged to help disperse crowds throughout the weekend. Free reservations can be made online.

Easily accessible, free parking is available throughout the Old Town area.  For more information, please visit
