The David Adler Music and Arts Center presents the 38th annual Festival of the Arts in Cook Park on Aug. 4-5.
Located in downtown Libertyville, the two-day Festival of the Arts offers up to 75 booths of fine and decorative art by local, regional and nationally acclaimed artists.
“This year, we’re also excited to bring two days of musical entertainment to the Festival of the Arts,” said Heather Williamson, Adler Center program director. “We’ll also have great activities for kids in our art activity tent.”
“Our (festival) is quaint, easy to get around, and lots of the artists are local,” says Adler member artist Tanya Leintz. “It’s fun; the art is more affordable. It’s an easygoing, happy festival.”
Festival of the Arts runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both Aug. 4-5. Admission is free, and street and garage parking is available.
