The Art Fair within Skokie's Backlot Bash will take place on Saturday, August 24 and Sunday, August 25. Although the Bash is open morning, noon, and night, the Art Fair will be open to the public 12–5 p.m. (with your own set up and tear down before and after). Artists will set up 10' x 10' tents on the lawn next to the Skokie Public Library and manage their own sales. The Skokie Park District can provide tables and chairs, if needed, and tents are available for rent. There will be overnight security, but we encourage artists to bring artwork home on Saturday night, or at least cover and store artwork before reopening again on Sunday. 

The cost to sell at the art fair is $150 for 2 days, when you provide your own tent. Tents are available for rent at an additional $50.
